We keep seeing this beautiful piece by Sue Austin popping up online again and had to share: “Instead of allowing her circumstances to hinder her art, Sue Austin uses her wheelchair as a “vehicle” to create some extraordinary imagery.”
Ability, not disability. Instead of allowing her circumstances to hinder her art, Sue Austin uses here wheelchair as a “vehicle” to create some extraordinary imagery. And her latest project is an amazing expression of how someone with a “disability” can show so much true ability.
