Making invisible pain visible.
It took Jacquiline Østergaard 20 years to find her mission after a serious car accident.
A car accident 20 years ago sent Jacquiline Østergaard into a dark corridor of invisible pain, but she emerged from it as a graphical poet on a mission.
Her big question was, how do you relate to something that's invisible, yet still controls your life? It took her a long time to figure out a way forward.
She allowed the pain to transform her, and through that process she was able to change her narrative about it.
In 2022, she published a collection of graphical poems, From Pain To Poetry, as a high-end art book to share her experience.
It turned out to be the perfect tool for pain coaches and therapists because it gives their clients a visual language for expressing how they feel. Much like she did.
However, her craft as an artist didn't click into place until someone gave her a reMarkable out of the blue.
It's a tablet that imitates the feeling of paper when writing and drawing on it. It was a complete game changer for her, and Graphical Poet became a reality.
As a result of the interest in her book, she decided to publish the book as three separate e-books to make it easier available to a larger international audience.
It's now on its way to Australia, the United States, and Japan, and she is looking forward to sharing her learning points about invisible pains.
