Jesse is an amazingly talented teenage artist, producing detailed and complex drawings. He also has no limbs.
Born without arms or legs, the 15 year old Kiwi lad has been in a wheelchair all his life, and undergone a staggering 45 procedures, including surgery on his back and small stump/arm.
But Jesse never let the lack of limbs stop him from being an artist.
Inspiring ‘Art of mouth’
Using nothing but his mouth and a pencil, Jesse has amazing artistic talent, creating drawings most multi-limbed people could only dream of.
With the need to raise funds for Jesse's special needs (next on the wish list is a modified car he can drive), and a desire to share his talented artwork, his parents set up the website www.nolimbs.co.nz.
Jesse’s mouth drawn art is an inspiring example of what can be achieved when you persevere in using what you do have, rather than focusing on what you don’t have.
