Our objectives

The Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (‘AMFPA’) is an international organisation, owned by its artist members, whose purpose is to:

  • Make contact with all people who are either artists who have lost the use of their hands through accident or illness and who paint with the brush held in the mouth or with the feet; or people who, having been born or become disabled, wish to learn to paint and support themselves through the sale of their work

  • Take care of its artists’ interests by helping them to sell their work, primarily in the form of reproductions as greetings cards, calendars and other paper products

  • Co-operate in the interests of self-helping disabled people, worldwide establish publishing houses

  • Give disabled people who are interested in becoming students every moral and financial assistance to do so and give students financial, practical and creative support to become fully developed artists and members of the Association

  • Publish material which communicates and supports the purpose of the organisation

  • Help disabled artists to attain self-respect, creative fulfilment and financial security

  • Stage exhibitions and conferences worldwide
