Hilary Cooper's works are painted to challenge society's misconceptions of disabilities in a deeply visual and emotional way. Cooper spent some time in a wheelchair when she broke her neck in 1995; for a while it appeared she would spend the rest of her life there. This experience taught her what all able-bodied people should know: the stigma of otherness and the range of diversity in human experience.
