We love stories of amazing people that turn adversity into amazing talents.
John Bramblitt had never painted before going blind. Losing his vision at age 30 from epilepsy was “the deepest darkest hole” for him but he knew that art was his way out. Drawing the outline of his paintings with quick-drying paint, John could trace the lines with his fingers. Tubes of paint are labeled with braille, but John has found that every shade of color has it’s own special texture. John has published 2 books on painting, gives speeches at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and makes a living off of his amazing paintings.
