I am a visually impaired visual artist who hopes to change the world one painting at a time! I was born with optic nerve hypoplasia and nystagmus.
I started drawing nine years ago and then painting about five years ago. Along the way, I realized – and was told by many people – that I have a talent and a gift when it comes to art.
Throughout my childhood, I heard so many opinions and comments about how disabled people are not able to be successful or be talented due to “barriers” or the fact that we have a missing sense. With my art, I want to show and prove to people that they are so wrong about us.
The disabled are still able! Here are some samples of my work.
