Sisters Turn Wheelchairs Into Artworks

July 31, 2018

Izzy Keane was born with spina bifida, and when she was a child, used to decorate her wheelchair for special occasions. Her sister Ailbhe, an art student, later designed a funky wheelchair cover for Izzy as part of a college project. After seeing how much Izzy loved the design, the sisters came up with more of them, and now run a company working with 40 designers to create colourful, fashionable, artistic wheels for people like 10-year-old Lucy. As the company’s motto proudly states: “If you can’t stand up, stand out.”
