In Rachel's words....
I am a digital and fine artist as well as a photographer and graphic designer. I started showing symptoms of dysautonomia during my senior year of college while I was working on my Honors art show.
My skills are versatile, so depending on what symptoms are flaring up, I can still work on creating pieces of art. Screen Printing and Digital art are the most "Spoonie Friendly" mediums for me. Screen printing and digital mediums are a blessing because there is no time frame on when a step needs to be finished. If I'm having a bad flare and can't get to a piece for a few weeks, it will still be waiting for me.
I do have bad days when there is nothing I can do, but I use that downtime to enjoy other artist's work.
Digital media has allowed me to work from home and communicate with clients, even during a flare. Because of this, I don't feel "disabled", but adaptable to my situation.
