No Limits: Paralyzed man motivates others with wheelchair art

Published: January 20, 2019 | Spinal Cord Injury:

It all started with rain-soaked wheelchair tire treads that patterned across the driveway of Jeremy Bigelow’s Holland home.

“I was driving through puddles in my driveway one day, and seeing the tracks all over the place, and I thought it would be cool to somehow paint my tires and put it on canvas,” said Bigelow, a quadriplegic since he injured his spinal cord in a car crash in 2010.

That revelation might have been the catalyst for a burgeoning art career that Bigelow says he never expected when this whole adventure began, but those closest to him would say it’s his attitude that propelled him into the Toledo area’s creative scene.
