95-year-old pensioner has created more than 350 works of art. The woman really has completely lost his sight and almost helpless on the street. To draw, Margaret uses the sense of touch and memory.

The older woman began to attend art classes after her husband’s death in 1994. First she goes to the dance, but quickly realized that painting she likes more.

Local teacher Duncan brown not only taught Margaret and supported when she wanted to quit because of the loss of vision. “He said I shouldn’t give up,” said the woman.

Margaret complains that cannot create too much memory. However, her drawings amaze with precision and excellent technique.
