Annae Jones was born without arms in Lethbridge, Alberta, on 12 December 1979.
She learned to do most things with her feet as a child. She also tried wearing prosthetic arms but found it easier to use her feet.
After high school, she moved from home and attended college to study communication. Annae met her future husband during her final year. They now have a daughter and a son.
For the past 16 years, she has been a housewife and mother, but she has always written, and published two texts in a Canadian magazine for parents. Between 2013 and 2015, she wrote monthly for a blog for disabled people.
Annae discovered her love of painting when her friend invited her to a painting evening in early 2016. She found the experience relaxing and liberating, especially when she put the paintbrush aside and squeezed paint out between her toes so as to blend it with the canvas. Over the next few years, she took part in several painting evenings and began to organize painting evenings in her own home, where everyone created their own unique work of art. For Annae, painting is both a creative and a therapeutic outlet.
Self-taught, Annae loves to discover new painting techniques and methods, and enjoys going on the journey it takes to turn a blank canvas into a work of art. She is looking forward to developing her talent and painting all the beautiful things she sees in nature.
Annae, her husband and their children currently live in Lethbridge, Alberta. She loves to bake, travel, camp in a caravan, hike and explore nature.
