Anthony Hernandez, Holland Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida where I lived until I was 28 years old. I moved to Holland, Michigan in September 2001 and have spent most of my last six years in production work for Gentex Corporation. I failed to realize that I was not enjoying life while working there. I now suffer from arthritis and several pinched nerves and need lots of medical care/surgery. This disease really prohibits me from doing the things I enjoy the most except for photography. I enjoy cycling, swimming, and geocaching. But, I can't enjoy those things as much as I used to.
