Moses has been paralyzed from the chest down since he suffered a terrible car accident in 2003. While in recovery, he joined a class that was helping those with disabilities learn to paint with a brush in their mouth. After the first class, he gave up. His teacher gave him a few mouthpieces and brushes to take home, “just in case.” Now he spends 4 hours a day, 4-5 days a week, painting scenes from his home in Hawaii.
