About the artist

Headshot of Ronaldo B.

Ronaldo Byrd was diagnosed with autism at age 18 but displayed signs of his artistic talent at age 3. Supported by a tight-knit, loving family, he was encouraged to embrace his differences and create his own path. Aptly named the ‘Artist of Happiness’ his colorful, cartoon-like work brings joy to everyone who sees it. Ronaldo has donated his time and talent to Autism Speaks as a volunteer for more than a decade.
