30 years ago an artist was born. Since birth, a nomadic lifestyle was normal. From Philadelphia, to St.Louis, to Winston-Salem, homelessness became a way of life, but through it all, there were two things that stayed with Christian. His faith in God and the gift of art that God has blessed him with. Those 2 things have kept Christian through the years and have grown him into the man, husband, father, and artist that he is today. Christian also serves as the Assistant Lodge Director with Fayetteville Area Operation Inasmuch, and has been teaching art classes to the men within The Living Hope program.
