At the age of 13 Theresa Frys was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. Despite numerous stays at rehabilitation centres the disease progressed, and for some time now Theresa has been unable to use her arms (hands) and legs. About five years ago the artist made the first attempts at painting with her mouth - initially on her own. She then took and still takes lessons with a well-known art professor.
