Artist Statement

The boy in this picture is my own and he is disabled. Some years ago he played drums in a musical group that consists of disabled children. They performed at concerts, festivals and received many prizes. Every disabled child has hopes, dreams, desires and feelings. Every disabled child has abilities, either explicit or hidden. Every disabled child is able to love and they want to be loved and to be understood and supported.
