The Girl Who Loved Ansel Adams

Blindness or Visual Impairment

Tammy

A Legally Blind Photographer, Finger Painter, and Writer.

I'm a legally blind photographer, finger painter, and author of Kindle e-books for children, teens, and adults. The arts have been a big part of my life from an early age, but having a progressiv eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa, or RP, made it hard to keep doing these things. When I could no longer sketch, I discovered tht I could finger paint. When I could no longer finger paint, I discovered that I could take fine art photos like my hero, Ansel Adams, with the help of a point-and-shoot digital camera set on auto, my 47-inch computer monitor, my former art education, and my remaining vision. They say you're lucky to have had one dream come true in life. I've had many. I earned two degrees, became a social worker, a mother, a writer, a finger painter, and a photographer. Being a legally blind photographer, artist, and writer has its challenges, but I find if you push yourself a little, good things can happen.
