Woman With One Arm Draws Pop Culture Characters On Her Stump

A woman who was born without a left hand is raising awareness for her condition by turning her stump into pop culture characters. Artist Alexis Hillyard, 41, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, turns her stump into the likes of Winnie the Pooh, Batman, Wonder Woman and Stewie Griffin. In total, Alexis estimates she has created around 40 characters to date - each of which she shares on her social media channels. The 41-year-old said doctors are not sure why she was born without a left hand, but their guess is a condition called amniotic banding syndrome, where her arm did not get a chance to fully grow in the womb. Each work takes around an hour from start to finish – though some can be a multi-day process. A lot of time is also taken washing off the art products, Alexis said, as many stain her skin. The 41-year-old has a list of around 100 characters she'd like to create, and by sharing videos of them on her TikTok and Instagram pages, Alexis has seen a number of loving comments and suggestions come flooding her way.
