Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Rose Sarkany

Diagnosed at 16 with Ushers Syndrome has taught me to look, feel and create. I have an interest in all things outdoors. I am happiest when enjoying the experience of running, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, skiing, kayaking and dragon boating. Living on the West Coast of Canada, the mountains, byways, forest, ocean and lakes have become my playground.

When away from these outdoor pursuits, I lose myself in the world of my arts, using watercolor, pencil and photography. During my school years, I took advantage of all art classes becoming familiar with different mediums and later taking art courses at a local College.

I refuse to allow Ushers Syndrome to define me; I would rather express beauty in my art. My horizon is broader than my tunnel vision.
