I love to draw but it is difficult to control or hold a pencil like you because I have choreo-athetoid cerebral palsy. That basically means that my muscles and movements are not working how I want them to. BUT. . . don’t underestimate me. As you can see I am very capable of using my mind.
So, you might be wondering how I create art when I have unsteady movements. The answer is – easy (it’s not really easy, but with an ipad, some apps, a switch adaptor, two switches, apple’s switch control settings, a creative mind and a lot of determination it is possible).
I use two head switches to control my ipad. Here are some of the artworks I have created.
These first pictures were made using an app called Tux Paint.
These next creations were made using an app called Geometry Pad. I plot coordinates and join them with lines to make a picture.
I would like to thank my mum for making this possible.
