DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – An artist before losing his sight, John Bramblitt didn’t let blindness prevent him from creating art.

Bramblitt suffered an epileptic seizure in college that extinguished his ability to see.

Painting helped him overcome his depression, bringing light into an otherwise dark reality.

A couple years ago Bramblitt tried his first mural on a wall instead of canvas; enjoying the challenge.

Now on his third and largest, the mural on Bishop Highline is taking his artwork high than ever before.

In June, Bishop Highline held an event to honor John Bramblitt. During the event, Bishop Highline also presented the Guide Dogs of Texas with a $5,000 donation.
