Asphyxia is the author of The Grimstones series. She loves to inspire people to be more creative and open-minded. She is an avid art-journaler and generously shares her process to help others benefit from this amazing life tool. By introducing children to art journaling when they are young, Asphyxia provides them with a tool they can use for years to come for self-expression, problem-solving, life-planning, goal-tracking and building self-esteem. Asphyxia is also a Deaf activist, sharing details of Deaf experience. She handcrafted her Grimstone family of puppets and their world from upcycled junk, and has since toured the world with the acclaimed, award-winning theatre show The Grimstones. Now Asphyxia is ready to inspire students to create their own art journals.
