Empty Bowls Welcomes Showcase Speaker & Artist, Michael Sincic!🎨

Legally Blind. Creator Of Art. Inspiration To All.

Michael began his love for art at a young age - whether that was sketching or drawing cartoons. His passion for art came to an abrupt halt when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 13. Thanks to his parents and an incredible neurosurgeon in New York, his life was saved, and he is able to continue his love of art with painting and sculpture. Now legally blind, he has learned to “feel” with his hands.

Michael Sincic is truly inspiring and hear his story of triumphing over adversity is uplifting. Michael has touched the heart of everyone who has had the pleasure of hearing his story, and seen the amazing watercolor art he creates.

Join us at Empty Bowls to hear about Michael Sincic Art's journey and witness his beautiful artwork!

We love Mike ❤️

I’ve purchased his cards!

I suffered brain cancer for 8months, i also did craniotomy but it continue spreading i was scared at first cause i had few weeks to live but decided to fight to the brim, so i did many researches outside chemotherapy and surgeries then i found out how Natural foods and supplements can heal and terminate tumors so i did more research and came across Dr Gbojie's page who showed me some of his products which can eradicate cancer tumors so i ordered and tried for 14days, to my greatest surprise i went for a scan and it showed NED i was so relieved by the results and i thanked Dr Gbojie who was a honest Natural Cure Dr so i decide to share my testimony to help others reach him at Dr Gbojie Natural Cure
