After a violent tragedy, Mariam Paré re-taught herself to paint by holding the brushes in her mouth. Years later, Mariam continues to inspire people with her artistic ability and message of perseverance.


Mariam has shared her talent and message with people all over the world through TV appearances, interviews, news segments, and in print publications. She thoughtfully speaks on topics surrounding art, inclusivity, creativity, and adaptation. Mariam's mix of knowledge and real life experience teach people of all ages how to turn adversity into opportunity and to live the abundant life. Her story often touches the lives of those listening. 

Mariam's on-site painting demonstrations become a visual metaphor to the core of her message, encouraging people toward action and inspiring ideas and creative thinking. Contact.
