Brom Wikstrom worked as a commercial signpainter when he sustained a high level injury to his spinal cord while swimming in New Orleans, LA in 1975.
Already a determined artist, he redoubled his efforts and taught himself to paint with his mouth. He has demonstrated his technique around the world and is a celebrated member of The International Association of Mouth & Foot Paintings Artists.
