 In 2002, Mario Scharmer sustained a traumatic brain injury from an auto crash, leaving his movement and speech  severely limited. In his difficult journey towards recovery, Mario discovered painting as a means to communicate!   Local artist, David Brooks has been mentoring Mario weekly using all recycled materials to create colorful and inspirational works of art, leading him to win the 2011 Arts Recognition Award from Contra Costa County.  When I paint everything stops, only love comes forward...pure love that transmits positive energy to heal the world.
