Cheri Geckler

About the artist:

Cheri Geckler is a neuropsychologist who has worked in academic hospitals in Boston for most of her career. "Making art is a way of calming the fields and creating deeper insight into the complex lives of the patients I serve."

About the artwork:

"Patients on pediatric epilepsy service are often much more complicated than the record ever reveals. Expressing this complexity visually has helped me to maintain an acute awareness of the uniqueness of each patient and his or her multifaceted needs."
