Barbora Sedlácková was born on 24 April 2002 in C. Budejovice. She lives there today with her parents and 3 siblings. At the age of three and a half she became ill with motor sensory neuropathy - "Dejérinne-Sottas" - a disease which affects all four limbs. She has been confined to a wheelchair since the age of 5 and is dependent on the help of other people. It was at this time that she made her first attempts to paint and to write with her mouth. Today she can do these as quickly as any healthy child. Her preferred motifs are folklore, animals and nature. She has already taken part in several painting competitions and held exhibitions of her work.
