I LOVE TO CREATE AND BE CREATIVE
I'm an occupational therapist. I make adaptive equipment, therapeutic toys, and splints to help people function independently.
In order for me to function in everyday life, I need to make things. I dabble in drawing, fabric printing, felting, painting, paper crafts and mixed media art.
This is an adaptive shoe aid I made for a client who was unable to bend their knee. We tried a long handled shoe horn and a foot funnel, but neither worked. I used Aquaplast to make a combination of the two. I’ve used it with several of my clients since. This is a picture of a Polaroid, which explains why the quality of the photo is so bad.
