In 2002 I was diagnosed with renal failure and was on dialysis for four years. As of June 2008, I had my kidney transplant thanks to Dr. Ruzics of Saint Joseph Hospital and his team and staff! They were the best! A special thanks to my wife for donating her kidney to me! I thank you for saving my life!
Being that I'm young with a family, I struggled with the idea that I was fatallliy ill. Through illustration, I'm able to express my subconscious fears, thoughts and emotions. I don't always plan on what I illustrate many times the art develops on its own. Now that I have a second chance at life, I'm curious to see where my art will take me. Enjoy my artwork, there a lot of surprising details. People always tell me that they can't stop looking (at the art work) because they see new details every time!
