My name is Jayson Tench and have recently become a new illustrator and artist living in Ontario, Canada.
I was born with Cerebral Palsy and love being creative. I dabbled with painting off and on over the years, however growing up I was told that because of the cerebral palsy; my painting would never get me anywhere so I stopped.
Over a year ago I was inspired by a friend and local authour Sandra Wilson to try again. She introduced me to an online teacher, Michelle the Painter from Berkshire Paint and Sip and I have been painting every day since. It eventually lead to collaborating with Sandra on my very first ibook as an illustrator, The Gnomes of the Round Mushroom. Through my art, l want to show the world that while one is physically disabled one can be artly abled. It is my hope that anyone, adult or child, can be inspired to create in whatever form they choose.
