Wow! Amazing Talent of This Disabled Artist

One brief moment can change everything.

When Henry went for a holiday in Portugal with his friends back in 2009, he ran into the sea, plunged into the surf and damaged his spinal cord leaving him unable to move his arms and legs.

His new life started that day. 

“Life’s here to be lived. I try, and would always encourage you to try, and get that voice in your head to talk about the things you can do… not the things you can’t.”

Henry Fraser is a gifted and talented disabled artist who paints with his mouth. Henry is also a motivational speaker. After being paralyzed from the shoulders down after dislocating his neck, Henry didn’t let that stop him from creating wonderful artwork. See some of Henry’s work below.

My mouth painting. This painting is of my first visit to a beach since my accident. The last time I was on a beach I left in the back of an ambulance. In July 2009 I ran down the beach and into the water to what felt like a good depth. I dived forward without realising there was a sand bank in front of me. I went head first into the sand bank and dislocated my neck leaving me unable move in the water. I was face down completely immobile, drowning, desperate to catch a breath and save my life. That day left me paralysed from the top of my shoulders down. This visit to the beach I have painted, was completely different but still as great as ever! I still get to enjoy the sun, blue sky and fresh sea air. So much to be grateful for. #life #lifeisgood #art #painting #beach
