After stroke, artist Jaki McElroy sees ‘everything as a picture’

Jaki McElroy is obsessed with brains – and for good reason. The artist known for her vibrant sketches and buoyant caricatures had to focus a lot of energy to regain use of her mind after she suffered a stoke late last spring. For months, she was unable to speak or write. Though some of her memories have yet to return, drawing was one of the first instincts to resurface.
