Thank you for your interest in my work. I am an artist that is offering prosthetics for amputees without insurance. This is by far the most fulfilling art that I have ever made. I do all of this work myself so please read all of my descriptions very carefully and kindly follow my well-defined policies so I can continue to offer this unique service to those in need. I appreciate your support for the ARTS and a SMALL business!
I am a fine artist and I am self-taught in this field. Please send me a photo of both hands or feet, side by side before you make this purchase. I will give you approval if I feel confident that I can make you successful prosthetic.
