Clarke Reynolds – a registered blind artist from Portsmouth – has started an amazing project aiming to educate people more about Braille and to raise awareness about its absence in our society. Trying to narrow the gap between visual and tactile, Clarke is working towards art projects that will help sighted people understand the life of the blind. Clarke Reynolds is an inspirational part of our team. We want to celebrate some of his achievements we’ve been lucky to be involved with.

Clarke Reynolds, who lived both in Portsmouth and Gosport, considers himself to be a visual artist. His condition, retinas pigmentosa, has left him without his sight. He creates most of his art using tactile work and sound. The artwork he creates is also aimed at the sighted people to help them understand how the blind feel the world. A future project for Clarke will be talking about his work during the World sight day on 14th October. This year’s theme for the day is #LoveYourEyes. The idea is to raise awareness of everyone’s eye health and encourage people to get their sight tested. For more information about World Sight Day, look here. Story credit: Dani Basina
