What would you do if, in an instant, your body was rendered useless and you were left with only your imagination and the ability to hold a paintbrush in your mouth? A short film about artist Marcus C. Thomas explores how creative gumption and beautiful art saved a life transformed by tragedy.
At the age of 26, Marcus suffered a skiing accident that broke his neck and left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. On a whim, he received a watercolor set that turned his life into a ‘full time painting project’.
Marcus’ story is one of hope and inspiration for fellow artists, art lovers, those who suffer a disability, caregivers, and anyone struggling to make sense of a world that is both heartbreaking and lovely.
