"Creating art makes me feel good when I can take something that is empty and make something that is new and expressive."
Born in Washington, D.C., Clifton began making art in elementary school. He now lives in Austin, Texas, where he creates art at Art From the Streets, a free and open studio that serves the local homeless and formerly homeless community, and through Mobile Loaves and Fishes, an organization that promotes dignity for local homeless individuals.
Over the past five years, Clifton experienced the loss of his employment, housing, and some family and friends. Art, and his artist community, have helped him cope. Each artwork sale empowers Clifton, as it serves as a signal that his creations are valued and cherished by others.
