In 1993 at the age of forty-seven Lisa Fittipaldi went blind. Today she is an internationally recognised realist painter. In A Brush with Darkness , she recounts her remarkable quest to learn to paint and reclaim her life.
A truly incredible story - not only had the author gone blind before doing her paintings, she explains how she'd lost the ability to recall visual models by the time most were done. Samples can be seen at her website (lisafittipaldi.com).
