Blind Beauty Issue #10 | Maribel Steel

“As every artist knows and experiences, with persistence comes the magic of completion and the joy of accomplishment. Losing my sight gradually over thirty-five years has given me time to develop a clearer vision of who I am, so I also design presentations as a creative way to share my insights on the journey towards blindness.”
