"Despite this, I studied Fine Art at university and a few years ago my passion for art was re-ignited when someone bought me a blowtorch as a present. I create tactile art and process painting; it's just one of the ways I challenge people's perceptions of what it means to live with sight loss. Another passion of mine is sports and I'm a competitive bodybuilder. I've been training for the last few years and pretty much live in the gym nowadays! I hope that others with sight loss will see what I've achieved and realise that being blind or partially sighted is no barrier to achieving your dreams."
