One might have come across with artists drawing paintings by holding painting brush in mouth or in toes and fingers. But, here is an Australian woman who makes paintings with her breasts and puts her signs with her nipple

One might have come across with artists drawing paintings by holding painting brush in mouth or in toes and fingers. But, here is an Australian woman who makes paintings with her breasts and puts her signs with her nipple!

Di Peel, the unusual artist who originally hails from Tasmania, is attracting attention by each passing day, with her first canvas being sold at five pounds, the second fetching ten pounds, and she being now busy completing an order for ten paintings priced at 40 pounds each!

One might have come across with artists drawing paintings by holding painting brush in mouth or in toes and fingers. But, Di Peel, the Australian woman makes paintings with her breasts and puts her signs with her nipple!

The mother of two, Di works at the kitchen table rather than at a canvas. "I either apply the paint to my breasts and lean on to the canvas or apply the paint to the canvas and then lean into it to spread the paint.

I sign every picture with my nipple," the Daily Times quoted a report in the Mercury newspaper.

About her novel creations, she said: "They are more like abstract flowers. But my latest piece, people say, looks like the Earth from space. My son named it Earthquake, because he thinks it looks like an earthquake."

Di said she takes a shower every time she changed colours, and used canvases because drawing paper tends to slide around the table.
