Maurice Beckford would describe himself as very creative, inspirational, and compassionate. The medium he uses the most is his colored pencils. They are his favorite and Maurice finds them the easiest to color with, especially when creating his cartoons and coloring books. Growing up, his dad taught him to create art. He took art lessons as well, but learned most of his skills from his dad. His biggest inspiration is Walt Disney. As a child growing up, Maurice enjoyed watching cartoons and full-length films of Walt Disney’s. He hopes that one day his art can inspire others just like Disney has inspired him.
