Guest Post: 30 Days With A Blind Artist

Intro

Suzanne is using a CCTV to paint a tiger.
A CCTV (closed circuit TV) provides magnification to allow Suzanne to paint

One of the things I like most about blogging aside from interacting with all of you is the opportunity I’ve been given to highlight the accomplishments of phenomenal blind women. So when Woman On The Move, Suzanne Gibson, told me about her plans to do a 30-day journal from the perspective of being a blind artist I was thrilled to share her journey with you. So without further ado, I present to you Suzanne’s intro and a link to who she is.

This March I will be keeping a journal each day talking about what it’s like to be a blind artist. Each Monday I will post my entries for the previous week. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live with a disability or have one and want to know that you’re not alone, follow me through this month in the ups and downs of life.

Each day this month I will keep a journal of my day’s ups and downs as a legally blind artist. I will record, my obstacles as a blind person and how I overcame them (or not). I don’t know what will happen each day and intend to be honest in my journaling. I will not sugar-coat my entries. Every Monday I will post my entries from the previous week. I hope, in doing this, I can help people understand visual disabilities a little better and help others suffering from them to know that they are not alone. Please join me on my journey and feel free to let me know what you think.

Who Is Suzanne?

    I love this idea. I miss visual art. I think I will take in this project for the next thirty or so days.
