William Ngo was born on 14 March 1965. He was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was 17 years old. Muscular dystrophy is a group of muscle diseases that weaken the musculoskeletal system and hamper locomotion. Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue. At the age of 30, the muscles in William Ngo’s hands became increasingly weak. He was forced to give up his job as a jewelry craftsman in a jewellery shop. Today he has lost all use of his upper extremities. With strong determination, he now learns mouth painting. He enjoys his mouth painting because it gives him great satisfaction each time he managed to complete a painting. He prefers painting landscapes using watercolours. He wishes to become a professional mouth painter one day.
