“Art by Steve” by Steve Mireau

Artist Statement

“I broke my neck (8-08-2007) leaving me paralyzed from upper chest down. Spinal cord was completely severed from a crushed C-6 vertebra, which left me with limited movement in arms but no finger function. I have almost no sensation in arms due to the nerve damage and spinal cord being severed at such a high location on the spine.The doctors told me I would never walk again, as well as move my arms well enough in order to wheel a manual wheelchair. They also said I may not be able to ever play guitar or sing again. They didn’t think playing was physically possible but also were almost certain I would have troubles singing due to how much they had to move my vocal cords in ordered to remove bone fragments and install the hardware to support my neck. I have a different vision or some say optimism. I’m going to continue on and never quit believing that I will overcome this obstacle!” – Steve Mireau
