Tony Ryals' paintings and drawings are created exclusively by grasping brushes, fine line pens, and pencils with his mouth.

Tony was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1959 with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis, which severely affected the joints in his arms and legs, rendering them virtually useless.

At less than two years old, Tony became a foster child of the Jack and Evelyn Ryals family. Despite his physical limitations, he developed remarkable dexterity and coordination using only his mouth and neck muscles.

Under the guidance of his foster parents he learned to paint with his mouth using crayons and chalks. Tony eventually moved to Jacksonville, Florida where he attended art classes in high school and at Jacksonville University. Tony calls his works “Art of Hope”, as he strives to inspire hope through his art.

Tony’s love for art led him to create sketches and drawings that expressed his hopes and dreams. His desire was to earn his own way through life using the abilities and talents God had given him.

Tony’s paintings and drawings are created exclusively by grasping brushes, fine line pens, and pencils with his mouth.

This piece is from our large art collection, assembled over a more than 50-year time span. The collection consists of original paintings lithographs, photographs, drawings, etchings, and other types of prints, as well as some mixed media pieces, all of which we'll eventually be listing on Craigslist Marketplace. As our main concern is finding new, appreciative homes for the pieces, we're pricing them to sell, at prices well below fair market value. Thank you for visiting our listings, and please don't hesitate to message us if we may be of further help.
