Video summary: A short video of Brian working. He moves just his eyes to control his computer. This is a good day of racing and eye gaze art. (He's a huge F1 fan!)

Get Inspired, Give Inspired

Thanks for having a look around our shop! We're so happy you're here. We are Brian and Jen Parker, a happily married dynamic duo from the Atlanta area. Together almost 25 years, we've travelled all over the U.S. together. Those travels gave us the opportunity to take some fantastic photos, which are featured here.

Brian was diagnosed with ALS in 2011. Since then he's lost the ability to walk, speak, eat and breathe on his own, but you know what? He stays positive and inspires others to stay strong and make the most of what life throws at you. Brian is able to communicate and create art by using an eye gaze system (called a tobii). That attaches to a Microsoft Surface Pro, which enables him to operate software, which also processes text to speech so that he can communicate audibly. It's quite amazing! Check out our shop video. There you can see Brian in action!

I recently left a 15 year corporate career to stay home and be Brian's primary caregiver. We took a leap of faith and we're following our dreams. We hope you'll find something here that inspires you!

    Brian here. I used to be an audio engineer. We owned our own studio a few years back. I also worked installing complex A/V systems. Having ALS is a real bitch but I do what I can to stay positive and keep myself busy. Creating art helps with that.

    Hey. I'm Jen. I love taking pictures, writing and being creative however I can. Life has been a challenge the last few years and I'm always learning how to try and go with the flow. I'm having a blast learning about Etsy, e-commerce and more!
