Lisa Fittipaldi was an accountant before she went blind in the early 90s. After she lost her sight, she also lost her job and became depressed. In an act of desperation, her husband bought her a paint set. Fittipaldi began painting, working out the shapes through touch and colors through theory. Blindness, she told producer Michael May, has made her more aware of the visual impact of her work.
