My work + my story

The Artist

Hey, I’m Hope, I’m 21, a disabled self portrait artist and poet finding a way through within art and the wonder of human connection. I believe my work holds its unique value due to living a very different experience as a young teen, leading into where I am now in early adulthood. 

The illnesses I have carried with me over the years means my art holds its own personal significance due to how much effort has to be exerted for even the most simple of tasks. I may not be able to run at the same pace as the rest of the world, but my perspective gives a weight to my words I’m always grateful to have, that I believe transcends triviality.
