“Caged” by Lisa Benson

“Caged” by Lisa Benson

This self portrait is the tragically beautiful work of Lisa Benson, who is also a writer for Migraine.com. This is the second piece Lisa generously shared with Golden Graine in the Creative Corner.

Lisa says of this piece:

“Caged” is my most obvious piece about migraine. It is literally a self portrait depicting the pain and disorientation I’ve felt with a severe migraine.
