Mind the Gap

I grew up with dyslexia, mixing up similar letters and spelling phonetically.  I always thought that something was wrong with me.  I struggled to keep up in school and always lied about my reading.  Throughout my entire pre-college career, I never read a complete book by myself.  Gaps in my education were created, gaps I filled with creative playing, building and making.

Through my art, I wanted the viewer to see the struggle of spelling that I have in contrast to the craft and creativity.  These words are the gaps, and the art was my solution. 

Our flaws shape who we are and who we become, and I want to show others that my dyslexia is more a gift than a burden.
