To mark International Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Day on 5th September and to raise awareness of this unique art form, Dobbies Garden Centre Milton Keynes has commissioned an event on Friday 6th September, 2.30pm with mouth painter Keith Jansz.

The event offers a rare opportunity to meet the artist, learn about his working process and watch in close up the intricate skills required by the artist to create his mouth-painting masterpieces.
 
After suffering complete paralysis from the shoulders down following a serious car accident in 1995, mouth painter Keith was inspired to paint by the late MFPA painter Trevor Wells. Since that initial creative spark, Keith has gone from strength to strength, exhibiting his work in solo exhibitions across the UK, US and Italy as well as museums around the world.
 
One of only 33 recognised mouth and foot painting artists in the UK and one of 800 across the globe, Keith has been a part of the MFPA since 1998.
 
This event forms part of a series of one-off events taking place throughout September. Tickets are FREE and can booked through https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/meet-the-artist-a-unique-art-event-with-mouth-painter-keith-jansz-tickets-67992887557
