The 2003 documentary, "The Royal Academy" featured the art of Mary Cane-Honeysett. It was broadcast on PBS from 2006-2010. Mary is an amateur artist from London, who has struggled with failing eyesight all her life, yet has produced exquisite paintings of her disappearing neighbourhood.


Her paintings have been exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Mall Galleries and The Lord Mayor's Show.


Sadly, In 2006, Mary suffered a stroke which left her unable to paint due to tremors in both her hands.


Over the past 10 years, her eldest son, Tony Cane-Honeysett, has been documenting her recovery as she tries to learn to paint once again.


Now in post-production, "Brushstroke" will be ready for release in 2016.
