Jana Birta

Series of wall art showing animals with mobility aid

Hi, I'm Jana and I was diagnosed with McCune Albright syndrome at the age of one. While most physical hobbies are not suitable for me due to my fragile bones I tried painting and it was love at first brushstroke. 
This series of artwork is driven by my passion for the normalization of disability. Growing up and using a mobility aid was tricky in a way because I didn't often see the mobility aid part of myself reflected in toys and cartoons. On a rare occasion, I did see a mobility device it was used to make the character seem pitiful, weak, and/or old.
This affected my self-esteem and I wish no person today needed to see a vital part of their existence being used to awaken negative emotions. 
I wanted to change that and make people with disabilities see the strong and beautiful sides of themselves in art as well. 
This is why I wanted to share my art and make someone's day a bit brighter and lovelier. 
I hope you guys love them as much as I do and they inspire you!
