Bryce Forsyth has been making art ever since he could hold a crayon at age 3. Now 20, Bryce is one of the featured artists in the Squamish ArtWalk this November.
His Art Cards are on display and available to buy at Sea to Sky Community Services for $3. All profits from cards made by Bryce will go towards paying his dental expenses.
Bryce, who is autistic, also has over 200,000 followers on TikTok, a medium he uses to share his art and promote awareness about autism.
His mother, Tanaya Forsyth, has been helping him spread the word about his art.
“Being a very proud mom, I went from posting his artwork on our fridge to posting it online on TikTok (@MadeByBryce) and making videos for him whenever he wanted,” she said.
His first drawing video even went viral.
On TikTok, Bryce is known for his genuine smile, and his famous “Bryce’s Rose” drawing and his emoji collection of drawings which are also available on merch.
Tanaya says Bryce’s message to everyone is to “Never give up.”
Bryce is part of the Sea to Sky Community Services Community Living program which provides pre-employment skill development and employment support to adults with developmental disabilities.
His art, along with others in the program, have been made into Art Cards, an entrepreneurial initiative to support local artists by promoting their art as well as creating a stream of income for them.
