Artists with East Texas ties found alive in Haiti

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Four Haitian artists with East Texas ties have been found alive.

Jo Jo, Pierre, Eder, and Herald were all born with physical disabilities. They learned how to paint using their mouth to hold the paintbrush or strapping a paintbrush to their arm.

The president of Global Art Initiative was sent to Haiti last week and found the artists alive this past weekend.
