about

Tolkyn was born with cerebral palsy as a result of medical mistake. Although, as a child she was diagnosed and claimed to be not able to walk, to seat or to talk, yet she overcame her decease due to her passion for art. Her ability to paint challenged her to develop damaged muscles and reduce spasticity without any medical treatments or surgery. Her dream has always been – to be independent and free in her movements, living and creating. Now she lives and works by herself, helping lots of people to fight with low esteem and physical disabilities through Art. After three years of studying and working as permanent resident of Center for Art and Culture Espronceda in Barcelona, she decided to move to Madrid where she recently was invited for collaborative project with renowned photo-artist – Alberto Garcia Alix.
