This blog post needs no introduction from us, we are just left in awe at Ann’s talent and abilities. Congratulations Ann on having your artwork selected for the ‘Mouth and Foot Painting Artists’ Christmas cards. Read on to be inspired!!
I met Tom Yendell in 2008 at the Mobility Roadshow and he gave me my first mouth holder. In 2009 I attended a five day course to learn to paint by mouth.
Initially I undertook a beginners course in watercolour through Aberystwyth University. I have just attained a Diploma in watercolour with a distinction from the London Art College. I have painted portraits, wild life, landscapes and events .
I am just completing a series based on the 2012 Paralympics, before I start a certificate in oils with the London Art College.
I belong to an art group SAA Machynlleth (Iris Doyle organiser), where I am not the only wheelchair user, but I am the only mouth painter. Painting lets me loose myself in the piece I am working on and forget all else. I am inspired by my fellow Mouth and Foot Painters and I hope to continue painting for as long as I am able.
