Bruce has worked with several types of media but has found that using a No. 2 graphite pencil is most representative of his personal character and style. The pencil allows for ease of use and gives the drawing an old-fashioned appearance. Many of Bruce’s drawings can take up to 180 hours to complete and all are exclusively done by mouth. By using naturalistic scenes, Bruce feels that the finished composition is a reflection of his mood and adaptability to life.

Bruce’s drawings capture the beauty of nature.

A completely self-taught mouth artist.

Bruce Lynn Dellinger, a self-taught mouth artist, has been successfully drawing for well over thirty years. As a result of a farming accident in 1981 that left him a C5-C6 quadriplegic, he discovered that he could draw by holding a pencil firmly between his teeth.  This eventually led Bruce to the realization that creating works of art can be enjoyable and therapeutic.

In The Press

Dellinger has never used his unusual method of painting as a sensation but has let his work stand on its own merit. The refusal to be weak and unyielding in his passion of natural beauty is finally paying off. Follow this emerging artist closely as he begins to make headlines.Kate Eglan-Garton from the Art-to-Art Palette Journal (Dec. 2011)
