You Don’t Look Sick is a deeply personal account of creative process in a life challenged by chronic invisible illness.

“When it comes to describing my 35 year long night sea journey, I much prefer to paint, than to talk or write about it. This book, which includes only a few pages of essays among the 66 paintings reflects that choice.”

“There is a freedom and joy that I find in process painting, which I haven’t experienced in any other artistic medium. It is a raw, pure expression, that
draws out of me the exact truth of what I’m feeling in that moment. By sharing my paintings with you, I wish to convey a glimpse of my experience in living color.”
