Mixed Media (Commissioned by The ADHD Foundation, Liverpool)

A mixture of new locally inspired pieces alongside my recent award winning work celebrating the gifts/talents  of the ADHD community.  Varied and purposefully random as ever.  My artwork is for sale via my website www.heartwork.co.uk and https://www.artintheheart.co.uk/marketplace/

My featured artwork ‘Reigning ADHD’ was commissioned by the national charity, The ADHD Foundation.   Limited edition prints are still available (25% proceeds going to the charity).   The artwork was inspired by the ‘Umbrella Project’ which is an installation created annually in Liverpool (and now Manchester also) to raise awareness surrounding neurodiversity.  I was  over the moon to have won the charity’s  2018 national ‘Artist’ award.

I am very passionate about the cause behind the ADHD charities as I was diagnosed myself with ADHD in 2009 whilst employed as an Art Teacher.  My life has improved significantly since my diagnosis and I rely on my creativity heavily as one of the strategies to keep my ADHD ‘symptoms’ at bay.   I was one of the first adults in the UK to be diagnosed with the condition and my work has become entwined with reducing the stereotypes and stigma surrounding this most misunderstood of conditions.

Quirky, random, intuitive and always full of surprises. My therapeutic approach hopes to lift your mood as creating them provided a lifeline during lockdown.
