Stella Stephenson is a 71-year-old artist from Queensland. She produces acclaimed oil paintings and etchings – and is legally blind. It was actually her diagnosis that spurred Stella to devote even more time to her passion.
“I’ve always loved art and when I was told I had macular degeneration, in 1981, I decided that wasn’t going to stop me and I went and studied art.
“Life did get a bit busy after that but I’ve been making works ever since then as much as I can. I’ve sold pieces and won some awards as well which has been pleasing.”Read Stella's story

Low vision can affect people of all ages and can have an impact on many aspects of a person's life. It may result in falls and cause problems recognising faces, reading the newspaper, dialing the telephone or seeing road signs.
