Hi friend!

I'm Jesse Meadows,

a writer, digital artist, and content creator.

I specialize in queer studies, neurodiversity, and mental health through the lens of lived experience.

 

A journalist in the depth of my heart, I’m in a passionate committed relationship with research - my greatest skill is taking a scholarly paper and distilling it into a form that anyone can digest. I am obsessed with understanding the how's and the why's and sharing that wonder with others. 

I went to art school and worked as a documentary photographer for ten years, then as a magazine writer and news editor.

 

In 2018, I started making memes as a form of art therapy after a mental health crisis, and found them to be a powerful medium for expression, connection, community building, and education.

 

My work is focused on using digital art to educate and advocate for my communities: neurodivergent, non-binary, bi+, and survivors of trauma.
