Welcome to the Australian web site of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA). Formed in 1956, the MFPA is an international, for-profit association wholly owned and run 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.
The following pages include information on MFPA’s history, mission and operations. Artist biographies, examples of their work and MFPA's product information is also available for review.
