BORN with no arms, artist Swapna Augustine can nevertheless paint stunning portraits – using her FEET to hold her brush. The 42-year-old, a resident of Ernakulam district in Kerala, India, makes a living from selling her artworks. When Swapna’s mum Sophie was pregnant, Swapna’s father, Augustine, dreamt his wife would deliver a baby without arms, who would go on to bring glory to the family’s name. Three months later when she was born, the parents aptly named the baby Swapna – meaning a dream in Malayalam, their mother tongue. The inspirational foot artist has spent her life refusing to be defined by her disability – exhibiting widely and selling her artworks to clients across the globe.
