An "exceptional" son and his father are inspiration for each other in many ways. The family's journey is documented here daily (well almost). The father's artworks along with father & son collaborations are for sale and can be viewed here as well.

Title: "Coastal Townscape" Size: 16" x 20" canvas paper; standard frame size (custom framing optional) Price: $55
A portion of the proceeds to purchase this painting will be donated to Ben's class Fund.
Ben is a wonderfully happy 18-year-old boy. He has a rare genetic disorder scientifically known as Tetrasomy 12p. The related syndrome is called Pallister-Killian Syndrome (PKS). As for me (Bennie, the dad), I'm a 1986 graduate of Furman University with a BA in fine Art. Married to my wife Joan for 24 years, we have two children; a daughter named Jessie and our son Ben.
It is our desire that this blog not only provide need fundraising for Make-A-Wish South Carolina but to also give you inspiration, hope, joy, and insight for your own journey in life.
