The more she discovered creative talent amongst people with Down syndrome around the globe, the more convinced she became that their work should be more widely celebrated.
"Would like to thank the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester for their support. Exhibitions such as this will help to promote, and more importantly, create jobs for these artists. It will improve their self-esteem, create a much greater awareness of their individual skills and personalities, and make their families proud." Heart & Sold
Heart & Sold will continue to grow, and actively work to find other talented artists with Down syndrome. It will allow them to develop, grow, create, sell, educate, encourage and inspire. They want to show that art is from the heart, and that a condition such as Down syndrome actually creates exciting new perspectives and often strikingly original insights.
