Sarah Holten

West Harbour resident Sarah Holten, suffers from Rett Syndrome, a neurological disorder which affects her ability to speak, walk and use her hands meaning she is confined to a wheel chair and requires 24-hour care.

Sarah received $1,216 to purchase art suppliers and eye tracker software to help her pursue her dream of becoming a professional artist.

The eye tracker software works by using the eyes as a ‘pointer’ on the screen and allows for hands free control of devices, giving Sarah full creative control and the freedom to select different textures and painting styles.
