She/Her, They/Them

Image 1: A self portrait while using a CCTV reader. I am looking off, thinking, to the right and out of frame. I am pictured, framed by the CCTV reader screen, which is large and LED, with a large print keyboard below the screen at an angle. The CCTV screen is also at an angle. I have a short blonde bob (which I have no longer), light skin, grey eyes and old beige sweater on. The image is cut off just below my shoulders. The background behind me is cyan, and the image on the CCTV is glarey. To the left of the CCTV reader is an additional monitor that is mostly off-screen. It can be seen that it is a windows computer running SPSS; a data management software]. My eyes are open, gazing upward to the right, and I look like I am considering something cooly and assessing. I also look defiant.

My name is Hanna Sheehan. I'm a queer and legally blind artist and writer based in the New York City Metropolitan area. My goal is to learn, grow, create and connect with meet like-minded folks in the community.
