Darren, owner of Darren Guest Studios , has used a wheelchair since the age of 6 but has not let muscular dystrophy get in the way of his passion. A gifted artist with a strong eye for composition, he studies at Zoll Studio of Fine Arts and has developed a broad portfolio despite his limited mobility. His lifelike portraits, multimedia cartoons and impressionistic landscapes have attracted nationwide attention, netted him commissioned work and gained him fans that include the Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice and Ed Reed . Darren's latest project is an illustrated book about children with disabilities. "We're all the same and should be treated the same," he said.
