On Sunday, a Haitian artist was in Evanston to display his work in hopes that it will inspire others to overcome adversity.

Artist Herold Alvares was born without arms. While going to a school for the disabled, he learned to paint with his mouth and feet. His works have been displayed at galleries, the National Palace in Haiti and in private collections.

Sunday's event was at the Haitian Congress to Fortify Haiti.
