Court Cyrkiel

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

Court is a kind, thoughtful, and talented artist living with Aspergers. Interested in exploring different concepts and mediums, his mastery of the principles of art and design are reflected in his work. From a young age of 18 months old, Court has demonstrated his artistic talents. As a toddler, he would sit and draw smiley faces for hours. As time went on, his smiley faces began to have human likeness: nostrils, eyes with pupil and lashes, lips with lip lines, and ears with ear canals. Court loves animals, and they seem to love him, too. He is often called the 'dog whisperer.' Much of Court's art is of animals, and he loves to paint animals of all kinds. He also loves to go fishing, which has become one of his favorite art subjects. Court did not speak until he was almost three years old; he is still a man of very few words to this day. Although it is difficult for Court to express himself with words, his art speaks for him.
