American Artist & Author Kris Allen Courtney, drawn to benevolence and disability awareness by his own personal experience. An artist in spirit and gift, Courtney is dedicated to service and participation beyond disabilities. His canvas derives from images that move him to allow freedom of spirit in both paint and words. Free Expression is the theme behind most of artistic efforts. As my artistry leans towards a Primitive Literalism (Avant-garde), the heart and mind continue to expand in color expressionism that allows my spirit and soul comfort.
