A serious illness took away half of my hearing in 2006 and I was temporarily forced to cease my design and illustration work. After radiation surgery (Gamma Knife), I suffered from an even more painful condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN). I experienced extreme facial pain as a result of the TN. The pain ruined my daily life and tested my faith. In an attempt to distract myself from the pain and suffering, I returned to art and began to create robot characters. Instead of using art to release the pain and fury, I learned how to face the pain head-on and channel positive emotions through my creations. My robots are full of happiness, joy and energy. They are stylish cute, vivid and colorful. I want to encourage people to overcome their difficulties through art and creativity, as well as inspire people by my story and give them hope. Read Less
