Gayle Russell


Gayle was born with cereral palsy and has trouble using her hands.  To compensate for this she uses her right foot for most every day activities.  In fact she is so accomplished that she can even sew with her right foot.

Gayle decided she needed another challenge, so she began to paint by holding the brush between her toes.

Gayle had only been painting for 12 months when she was accepted as a Student Member of MFPA.
