Contemporary artist

I’m a contemporary artist because…

I’ve always been passionate about creating art. As I got older, I knew I wanted to run my own business while working alongside other companies and creatives. I work as a freelance artist, workshop leader and accessibility consultant, and I sell, exhibit and lease my own artwork. I’m also a British Sign Language (BSL) tour guide and create BSL videos. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing my skills and knowledge with them.

I’ve experienced barriers on a business and a personal level but I’ve learned to overcome these and to make contact with people who have been willing to invest and work with me in the long run. I use BSL/English interpreters via Access to Work so I can communicate effectively with customers and partners. My reputation has been growing nationally and internationally and I recently won the IPSE (Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed) Freelance Project of the Year Award.
