Debra Keenahan is an artist, psychologist and author. She has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions and sole and co-authored a book, book chapters and articles. Her work focusses upon the personal and social impacts of disability. Having achondroplasia dwarfism, Debra brings personal insight to understanding the dynamics of interpersonal interactions that include/exclude the visibly different from equitable social relations. Her work employs a variety of mediums to communicate with and engage people on difficult issues. By presenting alternative perspectives and experimenting with point of view, Debra’s work aims to immerse people into the lived experiences of the socially excluded so as to gain insight, understanding and empathy for human conditions that are not readily emulated.
