Thousands of people order the holiday cards Mariam Paré paints, but few know her backstory is as incredible as the art she creates.
For as long as she could remember, she was surrounded by color; paint tubes and brushes stacked high in every corner. At 20, she was one of the top art students at Benedictine College of DuPage. Until the night her life was changed in an instant.

It has been 18 years since Mariam Pare flew from San Francisco to Richmond, Va. for a weekend getaway.
Pare has not returned to her apartment on the West Coast since that flight, but she still paints — just without the use of her arms or legs.
The 20-year-old art student who left San Francisco is now a 38-year-old professional — and one of the featured exhibitors at the upcoming Buffalo Grove Invitational Fine Art Festival.
