i offer UNIQUE AND AFFORDABLE PORTRAITS in acrylic paint on canvas. check out my facebook page CHALLMAN PORTRAITS for more examples of my commissioned portraits. I was born and raised in northwest Indiana, 20 mins outside Chicago. I graduated I.U. Bloomington with a Bachelor of Arts in studio art in 2002. In 2005 I was in a near fatal snow mobile accident that left me with a traumatic brain injury, paralyzed from the waist down and lost parts of four of my right hand fingers due to frostbite. It was an absolute miracle that I did not lose my thumb. I thought that it would be hard to draw or paint anymore because of this, but actually, I do more painting now than I ever did before. No longer being able to work as a waitress, I began to sell portraits. once in a while i look for an inspiring pet to paint. To either make some money for a cause, or send to the owner who took in a severely injured, or disabled pet. So this accident actually changed my life for the better in a way.. Instead of working a dead end job, I got back to what I love AND make some money in it. WHAT'S BETTER THAN THAT?
