HENDERSON, Nev. - July 15, 2014 - PRLog -- The story of Karen Wheeler is astounding. Because she had to overcome the effects of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, no one ever expected her to create any fine art. But her drawings are amazing. The most common reaction is that, because her paintings are so beautiful, it is almost impossible to take your eyes away from them. They really are that astounding. All the more so because, Karen had to overcome an illness that is so debilitating. Karen is an extraordinary person, who not only has shared her creative masterpieces with the world, but has now made some videos showing what techniques she used to create these stunning pictures.

Imagine an aspiring art student, having some direct tips from Van Gogh or other great artists. Karen would find her comparison with Van Gogh as outrageous and would not accept it. But we are here to notice, beginning from great adversity through great challenge, continuing through emotional conflicts and physical restraints, the fight for great art continues, and this is what Karen represents.

Karen is not afraid of her physical condition, in fact she embraces it, and overcomes it. The result is art which is sublime, refined, and delicate, with a great spirit of color and imagination. But most of all, it is an inspiration to all, which comes down to this simple fact: There are no limits to the imagination. Watch her instructional videos to see for yourself:
