Thanks to technology, paralyzed 34-year-old artist, Sarah Ezekiel, can still create amazing artworks, and tell her story to the world.

Sarah Ezekiel

Sarah Ezekiel was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2000, at the age of 34, not letting that deprive her of opportunities to tell stories, she uses eye tracking technology to create amazing artworks.

Sarah can control her mouse with her eyes by blinking or just staring.

"Assistive technology isn't only about speaking for me. It enables me to do almost everything that able-bodied people can do. I email, read books, shop online, pay bills, use social media and paint," she said.

"I also have environmental controls, so I can operate my TV, curtains, page my carer and open my front door."

"When MND took the mobility of my hands, I gave up on ever creating anything again. I still can't believe that I can paint with my eyes - and love it," she added.
