Yvonne is enjoying painting after a life-changing stroke

Yvonne's palette holder

Yvonne is a passionate artist living in Hertfordshire. She is a renowned painter but her art was put on hold when she experienced a stroke which affected the movement in her right side.


Yvonne is currently teaching herself to paint with her more mobile left hand. Having been right handed for most of her life, it is no easy task. Yvonne has persevered to gain the control over her left hand that her painting requires. She made great progress, but needed to find a way to hold her palette since she isn’t able to hold it with her other hand. Our team designed a palette holder to get Yvonne painting again, it’s working a treat!

Sharing disability 'life hacks'

Norderstedter Flute Ensemble

 A 'life hack' is an idea that makes life a little easier, and we're sharing our disability-friendly hacks online so you can give them a try at home. This hack is a great idea that could help you to get a grip on pens and pencils, simply using a toy car! This could be useful for young children and anyone with reduced hand strength, possibly as a result of a stroke or arthritis.

Do you have a DIY idea that could help other people? Why not share it with our Cracked-it community!
