“Christian drew his first representative picture when he was 4 years old, and it was mom, dad and himself on the log ride at our local amusement park! This was the beginning of his journey as an artist drawing an unexpected variety of things that most captured his interest. He has copied famous works of art, loves shapes and bright colors, lots of details, activity and motion, and has developed his own style of cartoon figures that frequent his work. He is also interested in the art work of others, and his favorite outing is a visit to the Albuquerque Museum of Art. He has expanded his skills to include screen printing his original work onto t-shirts, scarves and bags, and has studied 2-D and 3-D animation. His art interests have helped land him a part-time job at a local ceramic and painting studio, which he thoroughly enjoys!”
Christian was diagnosed with Autism just shy of his 3rd birthday.
