Jon D Gemma is a native of Rhode Island where he has lived as a reclusive individual for the greater part of his life. Jon had a traumatic childhood suffering from migraines, which always made it difficult to deal with the reality of people. Born into poverty in Providence in the year 1974 Jon originally received a religious education. He was cast out as a problem child, and he got used to being a stranger in a conundrum. Jon has an Associates In Fine Arts from the Community College Of Rhode Island where he graduated with honors. For many years he spent time outside of the educational system searching himself as a surrealist. Art was always a form of communication when he spent a great deal of time frustrated and limited by other forms of expression. He published six books that never saw success in the mainstream, but writing was always cathartic and it's own reward. Tormented his entire life Jon creates out of torment. The more bizarre the more beautiful as Jon finds life truly bizarre beneath the surface of things. Originally diagnosed as a schizoaffecive he has spent many years in and out of hospitals and assisted livings. Because he was always on the creative end with magical thinking he is more accurately a schizotypal concerned with creative accomplishment. He had a personality disorder that made relationships impossible. He also had a fascination with dreams and visions, which is where he truly received his education in the desert.
