Due to a dangerous drug used to combat morning sickness in the 50s and 60s, Peter Longstaff was born without arms. ย What others saw as an obstacle was nothing other than a trait thatย made Peter special. ย He learned to use his feet like hands and did what everyone else could do. ย Farming? ย He’s done it. ย Coachingย sports? ย He’s done it. ย Painting? ย That’s why we’re here. ย The imagery he portrays is simple yet breathtaking. ย I believe Peter’s life story has given him a higher level of respect and appreciation for art. ย It shows in the craftsmanship of his paintings (dailymail.co.uk).

๐ŸŒŸย I wish I could give you more information and tell you how to support Mr. Longstaff, but I can’t. ย There is very little information floating around the internet, and I can’t find anymore of his work except for teeny tiny images that are bad quality. ย Here is all I could dig up:
