Netta met a girl who painted with her mouth and decided to give it a try herself
On November 25th 1994, Netta’s life turned completely upside down. From a very active high school student and an athlete who loved making hand crafts, she was struck down with Transverse Myelitis, a rare syndrome that inflated her spinal cord and left her paralyzed from the shoulders down and ventilator dependent. After coming off the ventilator and while still in rehabilitation, Netta met a girl who painted with her mouth and decided to give it a try herself. She started painting with water colors and later moved to acrylics, with which she paints today.
She works in a hi-tech company and is a mother to a Itay, a two-year old boy
