Athena Storm is a 7 year old digital media artist from Maryland. She has Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and uses eyegaze as her primary mode of communication.
Athena sketches with her eyes using her Tobii C Eye AAC device, and with her hands on a kindle. Her art shows movement and intention. Sharp lines layered with soft strokes and billowing fabric are a signature of her sketches. She also has a series of circular drawings she calls 'Through Our Eyes'.
Although she creates her art in various directions, often images drawn in landscape orientation are not realized by the viewer until she suggests that the image be rotated at a ninety degree angle. Her work shows many planes that we do not see with the average human eye, and is often a collage of images drawn atop one another, for she never erases.
Art has shown to be the best form of expression for Athena. What Athena can, or will do, is an ever evolving question waiting to be answered.
