Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if an artist is unable to see her own creations? That was the case for Toni Schiff, who had a long career as a teacher and therapist before ever picking up a paintbrush. She spent her professional life working on behalf of human rights campaigns and children in particular, but her life took a turn when she lost her eyesight to diabetes in her 50s and developed Parkinson's disease in her 60s. Despite these physical setbacks, Schiff maintained her lifelong interest in the arts. She took up painting, enjoying her works through the eyes of others and exhibiting in Provincetown, Rhode Island, and was a prolific painter until her death in 2013. Her portfolio is on permanent showcase at POBA.org, a website devoted to preserving the legacies of artists of all kinds. Schiff's story is a good reminder that it is never too late to follow your passions.
