My name is Sonia, I'm a graphic designer and in 2017 I began to draw patterns with swear words to help me get through breast cancer treatment. Drawing them helped me handle pain when I didn't have the strength to speak, and while I'm happy to be able to swear out-loud again, today these patterns still help me manage the difficult physical limitations caused by treatment. If you like, you can read more about it here, or email with questions. And if you're interested in my more of work, you can take a look at my sprawling graphic design portfolio at soyabean.com -- Sonia Harris, July 2023
