In this moving memoir, she paints a vivid picture of the perceptual and emotional darkness that accompanied her vision loss, and her arduous journey back into the sighted world through mastery of the principles of art and color. The challenge of a childs watercolor set, thrown down like a gauntlet by her frustrated husband, opened the door to a new life.

Discovering that her ability to master the small world of the canvas enabled her to navigate the wide world shed lost, she painstakingly taught herself to draw and paint, substituting rigorous study of the principles of art and color theory for her lost vision. Lisa doesnt see color, distance, dimension, or print. Yet she depicts groups of people caught in the activities of daily living in astonishing detail and spectacular color.

She has sold over 500 original paintings internationally. Scientists and researchers seek out her insight into vision and perception. I truly feel that unless blindness had toppled the carefully maintained edifice I called my life, there is no way that I would be the kinder, more fulfilled person I am today, Lisa writes.

I found my lifes passion in painting. Blindness took away my sight but gave me clarity of vision. It took blindness to teach me the meaning of love and friendship.
