Hello Sharon,
A successful painter you may consider for you unit is the artist Chuck
Close. Chuck Close became involved with art as a way to escape from his
learning disabilities. "During his childhood in the 1940's educators
didn't know about LD's and dyslexia." In 1988, Chuck a successful
painter suffered a collapse of the spinal artery which left him
partially paralyzed. He now paints sitting in a wheel chair using
hydraulics to lift himself and rotate his larger than life portraits.
