Following her stroke, it took eight years for Dr. Jill to successfully rebuild her brain – from the inside out. In response to the swelling and trauma of the stroke that occurred in her left brain, the functions of her right hemisphere became uninhibited and blossomed. Among other things, she now creates stained glass brains and loves helping figures come out of limestone.
Dr. Jill’s Whole Brain Art
A byproduct of her stroke, Dr. Jill experienced a heightened sense of color and visual creativity and she continued her hobby of stained glass creations as a form of art therapy. Combining her science of the brain and human body with her art skills, she began creating anatomically correct stained glass brains which now sell as fine art. Among other places, Dr. Jill’s stained glass brain masterpieces can be found hanging within the walls of the NIMH in Bethesda, MD. as well as at the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center in Belmont, MA. The brain Dr. Jill is holding flew all the way to Ireland!
