    About the Artists:

    Ann Philippas

    Bio: Having graduated with a BA (Honours) Illustration degree from the London Metropolitan University in September 2012, I have gone on to produce a great many watercolour illustrations over the years, in most of which I enjoy recreating scenes from classic children's books and films.  My colours and themes tend to be quite dark, yet I sometimes manage to include an element of cosiness in my images as well.

     

    I am half Greek/half British and was born in Athens and brought up in Corfu.  I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2005 and came to live in England in 2007. I have managed to exhibit and sell many of my paintings during my time here and have been working in Day Centre settings for the National Autistic Society for almost 6 years now.

    Sarah Olive Edwards
    @sarahtonin_seeker

    Bio: Learning in my thirties that I'm autistic has resulted in a journey of reflection, re-evaluation and self love. I paint those who identify as women and non-binary in order to improve compassion towards my internal & external self, relearning a lifetime of neurotypical conditioning and the effects of capitalism on the way I view myself, and to see bodies as the work of art they are. I create mixed media pieces, primarily using acrylics, and simple materials such as gel wax pens and oil pastels.

    @art.tee5

    Bio: I’m a visual artist. My work reflects existential Experiences, is often autobiographical but not limited to internal insights. Down the spectrum Having a deep connection with nature I’ve become receptive to the external world around me.. Through this lens Im able to value form and transition unveiling the wonder of fleeting moments. This dance between the contrasting world’s inner and outer elicits my curiosity to create and capture. My methodology is experimental however i mostly take to paintings and photography. I have a diverse range of styles from abstract, realism to animation/graphics. I use acrylics and watercolours along with found objects. My curios nature keeps me from committing to a particular style or medium.
