Welcome to the Canadian web site of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA). Formed in 1956, operating in Canada since 1961, the MFPA is an international, for-profit association wholly owned and controlled by disabled artists to help them meet their financial needs. Members paint with brushes held in their mouths or feet as a result of a disability sustained at birth or through an accident or illness that prohibits them from using their hands.
Mouth Painter Mariam Paré recently exhibited her work at major cities in North America including Toronto and Vancouver.
