Ebony was born on February 5, 1985, in Amersfoort, Holland, The Netherlands. In 1988, Ebony was diagnosed with Autism, at which time the Air Force moved her family to Bergstrom AFB, Texas, where Ebony attended early childhood development classes at Del Valle ISD. At an early age, Ebony showed promise as an artist. By age 4, she was drawing cartoon characters from Looney Tunes and other children’s shows. In 1997, her family moved to Pflugerville, Texas, where Ebony attended Pflugerville ISD. While there, she was well known for her artwork as well as for her involvement with Pflugerville’s Special Olympics. In 2006, Pflugerville ISD purchased a painting from Ebony that is currently on display in Connally High School’s library. Ebony graduated from Connally High School in 2007 and became a part of the Imagine Art community, which has helped her tremendously in her artistic pursuits.
