Blind Artist Lisa Fittipaldi
Lisa describes her way of painting as;
The images in my mind's eye became clearer as my sight diminished. Now, by hearing or experiencing something, I can picture it in my head and paint it."
Along with painting, Fittipaldi is also writer of famous books that have been published in Spanish, Turkish, German as well as English.
"A Brush with Darkness"
This book is Lisa's own fascinating story of losing her vision because of a vascular disease, and how she overcome her blindness while learning to paint.
The Art of Living Aboard a Boat"
Covers essential live aboard and cruising topics from selection to purchasing, shakedown cruises to long distance preparation, local lifestyles to high sea adventures.
Lisa is also running a foundation which provides special computer technology to blind and deaf children.
You will simply run out of words, while saying something for her. She is absolutely amazing artist and human being.
