Sara Jane Parsons, mouth painter, watercolourist, was born on 3 Jan 1964 in the US. She resides in Austin, Texas with her partner, and their dog and cat. Largely self-taught, she began painting in watercolour as a creative outlet after becoming quadriplegic due to a car accident. When asked if it’s difficult to paint as she does, holding the brush in her mouth, her standard reply is, “I don’t know. I’ve never done it any other way!”
Sara Jane’s work has been recognized locally, nationally, and internationally. She paints florals, figurative work, portraits, and landscapes. Sara Jane describes her work as “Contemporary Realism.” She became a scholarship member of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists in 2009. Sara mostly works in watercolour and graphite.
