The passion of an artist comes from within.

Although, sometimes, you need something unique and extra special to bring it out of them.

There are some places and people in Metro Detroit that you can only describe as magical. The Soul Studio and it's artist are a few of them.

In that space, they know no limits, no boundaries, no fear.

One young woman, 27-year-old Felicia Bowers, literally creates her vision, with her beautiful eyes, which allows her to design digital magic – and Bowers has Cerebral Palsy. 

“I can do art by myself," Bowers said. "I use my eyes to select what i want. There is a camera at the bottom of my device; it tracks my eyes."

Bowers refuses to set any boundaries for her present, or her future.

“My art helps people understand me," she said proudly. "I want people to learn about love and freedom from my art. I can do art by myself."

One of her pieces went for more than $14,000 at a recent auction. This is not just a hobby for Felicia. This is a vocation. She can support herself and make a living with her artwork.
