Artist inspired by his own stroke recovery

Eugene Brown

Eugene Brown considers the artwork he’s created the last 13 years to be more intense and more creative than ever before.

What led to such a change? A stroke that limited the use of his right side, forcing the right-handed artist to start expressing himself through his left hand.

Eugene’s recovery is a wonderful example of the strides being made in stroke rehabilitation and recovery. Your donation to the American Stroke Association and the American Heart Association will help continue the work to prevent, treat and beat stroke.

Eugene remains a great example of what can be done. From his beautiful artwork to his beautiful outlook on life, he finds joy in encouraging and inspiring fellow stroke survivors.

“I tell people, ‘Never give up. Keep working at something,’” he said. “If you can’t do what you used to do, finding something else to do and work hard at that.”
