Thirty-nine years ago I was born with thirty bone fractures. My odds to survive were pretty low.
But I turned out to be a ghter.
I tracked down the crack that let the light in. I found my lucky escape.
Drawing is my positive shield, a lter through which I see the world.
A happy voyeur, who – maybe because of my handicap – got the freedom to make my own idiom.
It’s allowed me to be my true self.
Damaged but powerful.
I know there is beauty in imperfection.
