Creative Writing Artist Statement (include type of art, techniques & materials used, what it means to you)
I saw this door when I was on a walk and I thought it was interesting.
Consequently I took a photo of it with my iPhone and then created a poem to go with it. Both are my own art.
Before you lies a door

Bio (include your age, tumor type and date of diagnosis)
My name is Jason Burris. I am 39. I had a hypothalamic pituitary tumor when I was a child and have all the fun stuff that goes along with that. I enjoy creating art and poems. Art and poetry both help me work through things and come back to the present moment keeping me from worrying about the past and future.
