From birth, Angela María Rubio Quintero has had a motoric disease of all four limbs which is called neonatal cerebral palsy. That is why she is unable to use arms and legs and depends on a wheelchair. Angela María Rubio Quintero attended primary school through grade three. She was then taken out of school, as the facilities were not adapted to the needs of the disabled, making attending school very strenuous for her. After leaving school at the age of ten, she made the first attempts at painting with her mouth. She takes great pleasure in painting and, being self-taught, is continuously striving to improve her skills.
