Hi everyone. Thank you for visiting Wheelie Accessible Adventures. My name is Jo, and I live in Brisbane Australia.
I started using a wheelchair around age 6 after I was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease called Juvenile Dermatomyositis. I now use an electric wheelchair full time.
I am an Artist. I love to paint nature, including landscapes and animals.
I regularly participate and sell my paintings through local Art Shows.
I also really enjoy traveling and going to new places in Australia with my amazing mum and wonderful best friend Nicky. We are always out and about or planning our next adventure together.
