Enlarged Braille. This concept came to me while brainstorming for two works of art for the Sensory Circus Exhibit at the Meg Perry Center in Portland, Maine in February, 2013. One of the required pieces had to focus on just one physical sense, I chose touch. Every day people use braille in a variety of circumstances. It is very small but helps those who need it tremendously. I have decided to take that formula of writing onto the canvas with the thought of slightly smaller billboard style braille. Once I created the first one, titled, “touch me” I knew I was not done. Creating these touchable paintings is entrancing. I love that the viewers are then encouraged to feel what I have created.
