Artists Without Arms

Even if you are missing both arms, it’s still possible to be an artist. Many amputees, including Huang Guofu and Tom Yendell, have learned to draw and paint using their feet or mouths to hold and manipulate pencils, pens, and brushes.

Although perfecting drawing and painting techniques
with your mouth or foot will take exceptional motivation,
dedication, and patience, doing so is achievable, as the
