Jon Bradham has been drawing and painting from early childhood. However, he has also been going blind since childhood due to a condition called Keratoconus. 20 years ago, his eye doctors had exhausted all known solutions and his eyesight had become so poor that he was on the verge of giving up his lifelong passion. Luckily, a cutting edge eye doctor was able to restore his sight through a cornea transplant and Jon uses this new lease on eyesight every day to improve his craft as an artist.
Jon experiences joy when he sees beauty - in a landscape, in a cityscape, in wildlife, in people - and he wants to communicate and share that joy with others.
