INTRODUCTION TO THADDEUS
Do you know where the name Saab comes from? We don’t remember either–but TJ does. Would you even venture to guess what squad car the Chicago police used in 1958, or what kind of ambulance was used by Bellevue Hospital in 1973? TJ could tell you, or better yet draw any car from any police department (or ambulance for that matter) in almost any city in the US–with the approximate year!
Thaddeus Jameson age 29 or “TJ” as he prefers, lives with autism. Diagnosed at an early age at a time when there was little knowledge of this mysterious neurobiological disorder. Self-taught to read at age 3 and blessed with an eidetic (photographic) memory, TJ has used his drawing and painting to take charge of his life and his destiny.
