GALLERY

I have new art software on my Tobii PCEye and have started to paint using my eyes. I've loved drawing and painting since I was young and studied art and history of art for 'A' Level. I started an art foundation course at 18 but didn't finish it. They were trying to push me into teaching which I didn't want and I was too young and immature. I carried on enjoying art and did several life drawing and sculpture courses at evening school. I always had a sketch book on me, it was just a normal part of my life.

Marriage and kids took over and then I was diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 34. I'd always imagined that I would pick up my artistic pursuits later in life. When I lost the use of my hands I gave up my dream and started to write instead.

Little did I know that I would paint again using eyegaze technology. Of course, it's very different to using my hands and I'm still learning how to use the programme (Revelation Natural Art) and techniques. I absolutely love being able to create and express myself artistically again. I'm even looking at everything around me more intensely, which I haven't done for years. I feel as if life is suddenly more colourful and beautiful, waiting for me to capture it on my virtual canvas.

I'm going to post my work here and know that it will improve (I hope). Special thanks to Hector Minto at Tobii, who was the first person to help me to escape from my awful, locked in, MND existence.

Limited edition prints of my work are available to purchase from http://eyegazeartists.tictail.com/

  6. Sarah, love the new pieces! Daffs gave me a taste of spring-something we don't really get in Florida. I could practically smell them and it transported me back to my grandmother's yard. Thanks for sharing you work!
