I am an award winning artist who likes to do pet portraits and portraits in Pastels, Graphite and Charcoal.
In 2003 I suffered a stroke due to a spinal fusion, which left me paralyzed on my right side. It took 4 years of intense physical therapy to feel normal again. Art was not in the forecast for the rest of my life. But then my granddaughter was born, and Art came back into my life. All that you see is art after my stroke. I guess you must lose everything to gain what really matters. I consider myself the luckiest man alive.
Lewis’s art can be found on his website.
