Dennis Francesconi |Painting using mouth

It all started in 1989 when Dennis Francesconi taught himself how to write using his mouth.

As the result of a water-skiing accident in 1980, Dennis Francesconi [then 17] was permanently paralyzed.

Since then, through hard work, determination, and the support of his wife Kristi, Dennis is once again on the fast track and making things happen. It wasn’t long before he began sketching to occupy his time. Despite his injury, Dennis attended college to obtain an Associate in Arts Degree— which he received a few years later with full honors including membership in Phi Theta Kappa [an International Honors Society], and inclusion on the National Dean’s List.

In the USA, his work has been seen at various group exhibits in cities such as; Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, Chicago, and Atlanta. International exhibits thus far include; Vancouver BC, Vienna Austria, Sweden, Geneva Switzerland, the Peoples Republic of China, Great Britain, Sydney Australia, and Lisbon Portugal.
