Boxing Day; 1996, during a visit to my family, I broke my neck in a diving accident. I was later told that I broke my 5th and 6th vertebrae’s and permanently injured my spinal cord.
Nine months after my rehabilitation I was introduced to mouth-painting by Martie Westraadt a local artist. I applied and September 2002 I was accepted as a student artist with The Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists of the World, registered society, (VDMFK). In 2014 I became Associate Member.
As for my accident, I don't have any regrets; I live a more fulfilled and proficient life. I’m a proud father to a beautiful teenage daughter. I try and live positively not just for myself, but for my family and people whom I come in contact with.
Life is too short to dwell in the past. I got a second chance and I intend on spending it with a booming heart full of love and kindness. God Bless, I thank you!
