Vicki Henson

Vicki Henson attends a weekly art expression group for artists with low vision here at H*Art Gallery. She was a weaver for 15 years, but as her vision narrowed, she became dissatisfied with struggling to create textile art. She became withdrawn and depressed with the realization of her new challenges. Being able to explore new mediums in our low vision group has helped her feel less isolated and has helped her to cope with her lessening and changing visual abilities. Art is empowering her to “let go” and have more courage. She now says, “the more I do art, the more I want to.”
