I have dabbled in art all my life. Since I broke my neck in 2003, becoming quadriplegic, art has become my main method of finding a focus, peace & enjoyment. Being paralyzed from the collarbone down, with my arms and hands mostly compromised, finding things to do independently can be tough.
A couple years into my rehab, as part of my occupational therapy I began using a laptop with… a “poker” molded for my finger to type on the keyboard, while I could move the mouse with my other hand. I found Microsoft Paint and began to experiment with it. Soon I was making art. It was something I could do by myself – without asking for help. Roll up to the laptop & create. I print my ‘Paint’ings on high-quality canvas print-paper, mat & frame them
In March 2012, an occupational therapist molded me a pen holder in which I use a black pen. Since then I have been working on sketching. The Prints of Sketches are taken directly from my sketchbooks & printed on high-quality paper, matted & framed.
The subject matter I tend toward is that of nature, still-lifes, flora & fauna, landscapes, abstracts, geometrics, color combinations, dimension, texture, sometimes humor.
I truly enjoy working on this art. It puts me in a positive, peaceful place. It’s my hope that these pieces bring peace & good vibes to your space.
