Darryl's Story

Mary Free Bed Guild 2012 Art Exhibit, D, Artist

In 1981, when I was a senior at Cooley High School in Detroit, I was awarded Delta Sigma Theta’s first art scholarship. Instead of college, I chose to join the U.S. Navy to pursue a degree in architecture. I was injured in a car accident five years later and was diagnosed with a closed head injury. I lost my memory and had to be rehabilitated.

Before the accident, I was a talented artist who was showcased in various art exhibits. I sold my paintings on a regular basis at Wild Wings Gallery in Grosse Pointe. After the accident, I could barely draw a straight line. I went through an extensive program of cognitive therapy. I am still on the road to recovery, but am getting better as the days progress.

God has blessed me by returning my gift four-fold. Admirers tell me my ability to express art in detail is remarkable. I first exhibited at Mary Free Bed in 1989, as part of my therapy. And my desire to draw and paint has only accelerated since then.
