Painting the optimistic side of reality — Netta Ganor

My name is Netta Ganor and I’m a mouth painter from Rishon Letziyyon, Israel. I was born in Jerusalem and grew up as an athletic and artistic girl. At the age of 15 I contracted ‘Transverse Myelitis’ – a rare syndrome which inflated my spinal cord and left me paralyzed from the shoulders down. During rehabilitation I taught myself how to paint with my mouth. In 2003 I was accepted to the international association of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. I became an Associate Member of the association in 2015 and wrote and illustrated two children’s books, published by the association.
