Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Barbara Romain

When I was diagnosed with a retinal degenerative disease I had already been trained as a professional fine artist.  I had to re-think my whole approach to making art.  My color has grown more vivid as my sight diminishes.  I am now inspired less by what I see, and more by what I hear, remember, and imagine.

My paintings explore the weaving of words and symbols.  The viewer is invited to create his/her own poetry.
