Erin B. Fromkes

Patient Leader

As a mixed media artist and “spoonie”, creating art is my way to bring ‘invisible illness’ to the forefront. Using my condition as subject matter and material, I adorn personal items with pills, fabricate wearable art pieces out of healthcare supplies and decorate my medical equipment to give them an edge. Each piece is a celebration of ABILITY! In a contemporary style that blends painting and collage on canvas, I document my life. Symbols, texts and imagery that I include, seek to illustrate underexposed moments and experiences within illness. Every like and share of my health related work on social media helps raise public awareness for Lyme Disease and CFS/ME.
