From 2015: Julia Byrne Gossett demonstrates how she adapted instruments to allow her to paint despite having limited use of her hands.

Gossett, a quadriplegic artist, used sponge tubing to hold her brushes in her hands and then used her arms to paint inspiring and realistic watercolor paintings.

  1. I am sorry I couldn’t get there today. I will share this with friends. I cannot put it on my Facebook this week. I have a major piece coming on Monday. But…..let’s talk. I want to put several pieces together–like your video, etc. They are not easily found together which would make a stronger case. Can we get together on Friday? I have a bone density test in the afternoon–maybe after that? ​

    I am assuming you sent this to Denise. The village would love to know about this and support your wonderful work!

    Hugs, Kathleen
