MATTHEW KIET SULLIVAN
My name is Matthew "Sully" Sullivan, and I am an artist.
I was born with Cerebral Palsy, but that has not stopped me from going after my creative dreams. Through the encouragement of my high school teacher, Mr. Sporn, and my caretaker, Liz, I have found ways to express myself through art.
Painting and sketching allow me to show others how my mind works. Although I do things a little differently than others and some have seen that as a disability, I find that what makes me different is a strength. My art is inspired by my story, and now I want to share my story with you.
I hope you enjoy.
One of my focuses when painting is music and the way music flows. When I work, I always listen to music. It takes me to a creative space where I can be free from everything, and free to create whatever comes to my mind.
While I don't have any exhibitions at this time I am encouraged to paint and show my work on this page. One of my earlier paintings was acknowledged by the Anaheim School District and hung in their offices. Hopefully one day, I will be able to showcase my work in more art shows or gallery spaces.
