Jennifer Phillips has always been interested in art.
She experimented with ink drawings and oils in her youth, but never really pursued it as a professional.
It's only now, after she has lost much of her sight, that she has taken up painting with acrylics.
But the work has been of such high standard that she is putting on an exhibition, at Steve's Grill and Restaurant at the Centennial Hotel.
The exhibition was organised by her proud partner, Stephen Coull.
"There's always a display of paintings at Steve's Grill," he said.
"So I simply asked the owner if we could take the paintings down - just for a month, with the permission of the artist - and put on a special show and exhibition.
"It's never been done before at Steve's Grill."
Ms Phillips' confidence was boosted when she won a spot in the Vision Australia 2020 calendar, with a typically bright and colourful painting that will accompany the month of October.
"I was very nervous about going in for it," she said.
"But Steve said, Yes, go for it, have a go.' So I did.
"It was quite a surprise for me - and I've been very busy now, getting enough paintings together."
Ms Phillips' impairment is a genetic condition called Sorsby Macular Dystophy.
It has taken away her central vision, but she is still able to see out of her peripherals.
There is a risk that her sight will continue to fail.
But at the moment, eye injections are keeping it at bay.
"I'll continue for as long as I can," she said.
And her unique style has been well-received by the people who have seen her work so far.
"There's no plan [with my approach]," she said.
"It's just what I feel like, and the colours I feel like.
"Most people have said they like them.
"They say they're happy paintings.
"And as long as they're happy paintings, and people get pleasure from looking at them, that's enough for me."
Mr Coull is also an artist.
But the couple said the easels and paint in the house have been completely taken over by Ms Phillips.
He doesn't mind too much.
"When Jenny was selected for that one in October, I thought, maybe it was a bit of luck," he laughed.
"But every picture she's done since then just keeps betting better.
"It's been a really nice progression, and off she goes.
"I'd love to see her have more exhibitions."
The show begins on November 3 and will run throughout the month, with an opening event at 3pm.
The proceeds from the paintings will be donated to Guide Dogs Tasmania.
