August Friday Night Liberty - Kurt Rotzinger

August Friday Night Liberty - Kurt Rotzinger

In 2003, Kurt suffered a stroke. Before his injury, he was an architect. The stroke left him with severe aphasia and paralyzed on his right side. Since then, he picked up a love for painting and has been using his left hand. After his wife died in 2007, he found himself painting just about everyday. Kurt explains, "It is still difficult for me to communicate, so my art helps me express myself. I hope you enjoy it!"
