David Wisniewski tells his story to Sophie Bates of 13ABC Action News.

"If it's in you, you have to do it."

David Wisniewski is a lifelong artist from Toledo who still actively produces new artwork despite having lost his eyesight to diabetic retinopathy. In fact, David believes he's a better painter since losing his vision.

With the assistance of our Bureau of Services for the Visually Impaired, David was accepted into the University of Toledo's art program where he learned new techniques for continuing his craft.
