The incredible story of Tom Babb, Co-founder of Out of Hand Artwork

Artwork Through Adversity

Despite a life altering injury, Tom Babb has persevered. In the fall of 2016, he returned to the University of Kansas to continue his education. Refusing to let anything slow him down, Tom continued to explore life and all of its possibilities. Along the way, he discovered a new passion: painting. As a quadriplegic, Tom paints entirely with this mouth. What started as a hobby has now transformed into a remarkable small business, Out of Hand Artwork. Although most of Tom's peers hold part-time jobs that require mobility, he refused to let that stop him. Tom continues to prove every day that a positive attitude and a refusal to give up are all that is necessary to be successful.
