Eileen continues her story

Populations of people comprise 1% ambidexters, 9% left handers and the rest are right handed. The possibility for the mundane is everywhere.

The ARTS describes activities that go beyond the mundane: words - writing and poetry; music - song, dance, singing and composition; painting - all manner of styles; and sculpture - all forms. I am in the 1% group and have been involved in most of the above.

Quite unconsciously I have followed my allotted path, guided by my DNA. My path has been littered by much brutality - but what we experience in life enriches creativity. In my case this was definitely so. I lost my eyesight for six years and poetry erupted. I have been singing and dancing all my life. I became one with music, lost in clouds, sunsets, sunrises, storms and mist. A genuine interest in everyone I meet leads me forever onwards. I devised Celtic belly dancing for my health and happiness; it does just that. I have worked for 10 years selling prints of my original paintings to support 'Fight for Sight', with life and the living of it getting in the way.

I remember as a small girl of 3 years sitting on the pavement with a few postcards and a saucer. I have constantly been an artist. Through the ups and downs of life I have emerged very happy, just like the three year old I once was.
