In Canvas of My Life, a short film about his life, the actor acknowledged that single motherhood isn’t easy and gave special thanks to his mom for raising him right and for passing on her creativity, artistic outlook, and sense of adventure.

He said:

I was raised by a strong single mother. My mom’s an artist in every way. She’s a painter, a photographer. She’s a wanderer, always searching, always seeing. I guess you could say my mom gave me her eyes.

Thanks to his mom, young Momoa took up skateboarding and rock climbing. To him, these aren’t just hobbies: They're a way of life, in a sense.
