Paralyzed man paints artwork with his mouth

paralyzed artistAn Alabama artist finds a new way to paint after he was paralyzed in an accident.

Robbie Scarbrough has produced more than 15 pieces of art out of this room at a healthcare facility using his mouth.

He was paralyzed from the chest down when he fell off a ladder in 2004, but that didn’t stop him from mastering his art in a different way.

Scarbrough said, “What you see in your mind is what you can draw. I just put me a pencil in it [his mouth] one day and got me a piece of paper and just started drawing.”

Even though he had to switch up his style, Scarbrough says he will paint for as long as he lives.
