Alright, lets start from the beginning. I had inseptic meningitis for a short period of time as a child, yes it was a rough time, but blessings come in disguises. Despite this, I am an intermediate photographer and I have had pictures published in coffee table books. But sometimes the anti-shake mode in cameras does not help my photos at all. I did find however, that when my tremor is not too bad, but still there, I can create good artistic sketches. The way that this works is that the lines are slightly wiggly and that is what is known as line-interest. When I was in school, I got top marks in my art class because I never could draw a straight line, which is boring to the eye anyway. I often had to go over my lines several times to make them the shape they needed to be, which made the line interest better for expression because of the spiky look. All in all, a disability does not mean that you cannot do what you want to do, it can even help you to do it better.
I work with a group who are all visual impaired.I learn so much about my own art.None of my art quilts would exist if I hadn't of wanted to describe a Hummingbird feeding on a flower in the wild.
We are all unique and our art lets us show that.
Line interest is also what I do when I thread play like on my papercloth birds it brings dimension to a piece.
BTW your last line is in my quote book ;0)
