November 1, 2017

28 years old Bex is a queer and deaf artist from the San Francisco Bay Area in the US.

Bex, the only deaf person in her family was fond of arts since childhood.

She completed her degree in arts and worked as an intern with the Emmy-winning show "Robot Chicken". She is now working on a graphic novel.

The artist said that getting work in the art world is tougher for disabled people, especially with no contacts or support.

Bex also said not many disabled people get access to art training because their cost of living is anyways higher than average due to medical care and living expenses.
