Robb Dunfield

Summer Meadow

Robb is a renowned mouth-painting artist whose artwork hangs in many public buildings and also appears on Calona wine labels. Robb’s greatest professional achievement was creating the world’s largest mouth painting by an artist with a spinal cord injury that now resides at the Blusson Spinal Cord Injury Centre, which measures 6’ X 8’ in size and took three years to complete. He also collaborated on a Canadian best-selling book, titled “If Sarah Will Take Me,” that featured his art along with inspirational poetry about winning his wife’s heart. Robb was born and raised in Vancouver. At the age of 19 a fall from a third-floor balcony left Robb paralyzed from the neck down and is now a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic. Robb works full time as the Senior Coordinator for the Rick Hansen Foundation Ambassador Program. Robb is also a motivational speaker and leads disability sensitivity training seminars.
