His first experience in the visual world was in art, consisting of abstract designs and
still life works using his favorite medium, pastel.  Elijah’s art was displayed at the
Newark Museum and Newark City Hall.  He has received numerous certificates for
outstanding achievement in art.  Many years ago he put his drawing and painting on
hold to pursue another creative outlet of his soul, photography.  However, before the
millennium he became aware of an innate desire to reinvent himself by incorporating
his photography and art.
