Calvin is a burgeoning artist who has just finished high school. As well as being a very talented sculpture and model maker, Calvin is also autistic. Rather than this being a hindrance to any of his hopes and ambitions, he’s worked hard to overcome any problems that autism could cause him and is now beginning to carve out a career for himself doing what he loves best.
From an early age Calvin has shown real flare for art in both drawing and also modelling. He is now becoming a serious artist and has already been lucky enough to have had a few commissions, has had is work used in the making of Grand Theft Auto IV and has also successfully sold some of his work.
One of Calvin’s admirers is Oscar winner Nick Park of Aardman Animations who, after seeing some of Calvin’s earlier work, said: “Calvin’s models are excellent. He obviously has bags of skill, imagination and humour and shows great promise as a model maker and perhaps an animator in the future”.
