Artist Bio:
Thanks for viewing my art! I was born with a disability that prevents me from getting a regular job. Selling art is my only source of income. Therefore, your interest in my work is very much appreciated.

We all face hardships in life, some more than most. I am proud to say that i have learned to overcome what life has thrown at me. In fact, I believe the challenges have made me a stronger person.

I started to draw at a very early age and have been greatly influenced by my Grandmother who encouraged me to pursue art as a way to express my feelings . Unfortunately, in addition to my permanent disability, I suffered a stroke when i was 16 years old, which resulted in the lose of feeling and motor control/dexterity in my dominant hand. This made it difficult and frustrating to continue to draw in the way I had become accustomed. Not wanting a disability to define me, I decided to pursue an abstract artistic style that enables me to continue to express myself despite the lose of fine motor skills.

I hope you like my work. It has come from a special place in my heart. Perhaps it will find a special place in your home or office.
