48-year-old Peter Longstaff is living proof that ambition and hope can overcome pretty much anything. Although he is armless, he manages to create artworks most of us couldnít paint with three hands.
Ever since he can remember has had get around using only his feet. He had the misfortune of being born in a time when mothers were given thalidomide, a drug that alleviated morning sickness. But it also caused serious deformities in newborns and Peter was seriously affected by it.
Fortunately, this serious handicap didnít affect the artistís ambition and, starting from an early age, he figured out how to get things done with his feet. Now he says his right foot is like a normal personís right hand. He can operate switches, open doors, all while gracefully balancing on just one leg.
Before embracing art, Peter Longstaff worked on a pig farm where he had to drive tractors, stack hay and handle the animals. He didnít leave because work got too much for him, but because the market was getting to crowded. He retired and turned to art. He quickly enlisted in a movement called ďMouth and Foot Painting ArtistsĒ, as a student, and now his works are displayed all over the world.
Peter specializes in landscape paintings and also makes Christmas cards. His works are on display at the Picturecraft Gallery in Holt, Britain, from Friday till Christmas Eve.
