I feel cerebral palsy has enhanced my creative ability." Jansen Smith works primarily as a printmaker and he enjoys exploring the use of unconventional materials, such as tobacco as ink, with this age-old medium. Smith's most frequent artistic influences include current pop culture, skateboarding, and his Japanese heritage.
