About PAiNt

Hello and welcome, my name is Paint. I'm a non-binary artist, traumatized author (more on this in a moment) & creator in flux. I have a hypermobility disorder, neurodivergence & live with PTSD. I have an educational background in Disability Studies. I have a passion for growth, challenging myself, and healing. This is a space of shared learning and growth as I reflect on things of personal significance, as well as share my works in progress with sneak peeks into upcoming works, ideas for projects, and personal goals. I am also a witch & chaos magician, so I will share elements of how I navigate my spirituality, mental illness, and disability.

Project Process is an ever-evolving reflection and journey as I move beyond an assault that affected my ability to write and move towards healing, to reclaim my capacity to write a novel I had started before my assault. In a way, every act of creation no matter how imperfect is a step towards this healing as I affirm that it is safe to write and heal my own neurological pathways. The goal of Project Process is to heal PTSD as openly as I can while also demonstrating the factors that complicate this in modern society.

The Patella Tarot is one of the first major successful projects that I can attribute to Project Process. It was by accident that I started designing a Tarot Deck, led by a desire to illustrate Polyvagal Trauma Theory and communicate experiences of my life through art. The process of creation, communication, and completion are significant steps in my healing journey, as it allows me to transmute my experiences. I will share additional insights into this Tarot as I work towards creating a larger book about the story of its creation.

Diary For the End of the World (#dfteotw) is a snapshot project in which I am collecting the most dystopian of emotions as I experience to collect into a future anthology. Much of what I write will be snippets that may later be collected into various zines or poetry books.

Due to the overwhelming and sensitive nature of healing my creative ability for writing fiction, I will provide general updates on my writing process but keep the content itself private until it has reached a stage of near-total completion. I ask for your faith and support to be able to complete this work which I think holds great potential and significance but almost became a Lost Art due to the trauma I faced.

It was only through circumstance and the support of others that I was able to focus my mind full-time on creating the Patella Tarot. I have expanded my visual arts practice into occasional commissions, but I am also creating Print-On-Demand fashion and home products using the art of the Patella Tarot and new designs as they are finished. Here I will share sketches and art as they come to me and showcase my process of creativity and the symbology that comes forward in my work (this includes social, political, personal, and spiritual factors).

I will also be doing twitch streams with Tarot Readings, art, drawings, and discussions. I will share about videos I am working on for YouTube, poetry books, or events and explore the best methods of communication I have as I adapt to moving through the world in a way that is sustainable and not overstimulating. This is all a part of the Process to heal and exist as an integrated person while providing meaningful art to others.

This is a place of sharing and compassion as I find new ways of being and existing in the world and discovering the gifts I can give to the world and my community, despite any and all obstacles I have faced.
