Bramblitt lost the last of his vision in 2001 due to complications with epilepsy and Lyme's disease.
He learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through something called haptic visualization, which enables him to "see" his subjects through touch. He now paints amazingly lifelike portraits of people he's never seen--including his wife and son.

It is amazing how he can create such beautiful art even without being able to see! It reminds me of how Beethoven composed beautiful music without being able to hear it. I have no idea how they do it!
