About the Artwork

Brain tumors cause so much pressure and exacerbate migraines, and it seems that with each MRI we experience ‘scanxiety’ awaiting the results.


Rachel Mindrup is a professional artist and resident assistant professor at Creighton University, in Omaha. She received her MFA from the Art Institute of Boston. Her current painting practice is about the study of the figure and portraiture in contemporary art and its relation to medicine. Her son’s neurofibromatosis means spending a lot of time as a family in hospital and clinic settings.
