Art is about pushing boundaries for most artists, and British artist Sue Austin is certainly no exception. Sue, who has been in a wheelchair for two decades now, stunned the world with her beautiful underwater visual art pieces.
Experts told her that diving with a wheelchair simply could not be done, but this of course did not stop Sue. With the help of academic funding, engineering and diving experts Austin unveiled “Portal” a specialized underwater wheelchair.
Thanks to Portal, Sue is working to break the stigmas attached to being in a wheelchair. She hopes that her art allows people like her to find what they love and celebrate the joy in being different.
Sue's art and nonprofit Freewheeling have been gaining notoriety since she was selected to be a featured artist at London’s Cultural Olympiad Unlimited Festival in 2012. She has been pushing boundaries and inspiring the masses ever since.
While her art is stunning the true beauty to Sue’s art and her story is her passion to ensure that the world sees the person in the wheelchair and not just the chair.
She is an inspiration!
