Ms Jacky Archer was born on 14 May 1954 in London. She completed primary school. In 1985 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which gradually led to paralysis of the upper and lower extremities. In 2004 she laid the foundation for mouth painting at the "Maidenbower Day Centre" in Crawley; she taught herself to paint with the mouth. A short time later she was able to present one of her paintings at an exhibition organised by social institutions. From Alan Wells, Student Member of VDMFK, Ms Archer heard about the existence of VDMFK. The mouth painter is very intent on continuing her artistic education.
