Now let's meet Win Charles of Aspen Rose Arts...
The reason why I became an artist is to have a outlet in my life living with a disability for 23 years. Back in 2006 my life got out of control so to speak do to me having to have a six hour back operation that almost killed me, up in till 2006 I walking under my own power, summer 06 was hardest recovery of my life, and my "06 back operation" is still very emotionally painful for me to speak on because it changed my life forever.
The story of my art: during the summer of 06 I was doing PT 2 to 3 times a week trying to be good at walking using a walker. One day near the end of my Pt my Pt at the time said to me "Win your getting angry and depress from all this.,you need to see a counselor to help" My answer to my pt was sure, then on the way home I thought "that's nuts, I'm not doing it" so that same day I looked online for a painting program found one that I fall in love with, & still use today.
It took a lot of time for to achieve where I am today as a artist, then last summer my mom who was also my aid for 23 years got ill on july 12 then sadly pass away on Aug 12, 2010 so that said I feel that I'm capable to do most any art. Yes it's inspiring to move on,and face living everyday with a disability.
