Feasting the Eyes: Visual Art Created by Disabled Artists
This entry in our ongoing series of posts featuring works created by disabled artists is focused on visual artists.
‘Golden Koi’ was painted by Jeffrey L Salyers, a retired letter carrier with Parkinson’s Disease. You can read more about Jeffrey and see some of his work here.
‘Lifted by the Wind’ is a pen and ink drawing by Heather Freeman of Fire Sea Studios. Heather also has a terrific blog where she writes about disability, art, and parenting.
‘Self Portrait As Chicken’ is one in a series of intriguing pieces produced by Sunaura Taylor.
I’m also spending a lot of time lately at the Blind Photographers Flickr group, ‘for blind and otherwise visually-impaired photographers. How does having a different visual experience affect our photography?’
