Introducing our #WarriorOfTheWeek, Cynthia! Hear this talented artist’s story about how she uses art to showcase her #VS. 🎨

Spotlight on: Cynthia Cooper 🖌 @lifelongbrainfreeze

“My name is Cynthia and I have had Visual Snow for over a decade now and I am now 29. I have a page on Facebook called LifeLongBrainFreeze where I show my life experiences with my chronic illness. I have Hemiplegic Migraines, and I’m a stroke survivor, so I have the page to share my unique and intense story of everyday life. Visual Snow is a part of that. I often share VS posts from your page, tell my experiences and share my art that sometimes shows my VS. I’m not shy about it. I’m open and ask my small community about it on my LifeLongBrainFreeze page. I’m not making great strides by any means but I’m showcasing VS in my art more as time goes on. It’s one thing to read about VS, but another to see it showcased in art. It can be remembered forever, take  “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” for example. Thank you for all that you guys do for the VS community. Cheers!”
