    Very interesting, especially when you realise most of the famous artists of the past where never famous until they were dead and how much better if we could appreciate and understand an artist whilst they were still alive and able to live off the results of their abilities.

    Thank you for outside in , all that you do is so powerful in the way that you raise self esteem and by letting us in from the outside you bring peoples hopes and dreams to life . When you see your work displayed on here it uplifts you and encourages you to never give up . Keep doing what makes you feel happy , for art comes from within and can express every emotion , connecting people . A piece of you in a moment in time captured . I feel proud that I can show you something that I hope will make you smile . Whenever I finish a collage I feel I have been on a journey and it’s like my mind has materialised into the piece , I relax and make a cup of tea like my mind has had a blooming good work out , it feels good to sit back with a cup of tea and see what you have performed on paper . I usually put music on and that helps the creativeness flow too . I remember seeing an exhibition once at the royal academy of Joseph Cornell , looking at the work I felt immersed in it and it felt like the artist was there with me , it was shadow box surreal collage art that I love and it was from years ago, it was one of the most emotional days as I could see where he had glued and the great care of everything hand cut no modern techniques of today all hand made raw art and it was an amazing experience and there was then back in the day when he was alive he thought himself as an outsider artist . He was amazing and I wish he could have seen the exhibition as he certainly wouldn’t think of himself as an outsider now . Look him up he even made wonderful films of shadows and reflections from the trees and sounds of the breezes it was so mesmerising x Outside in is one huge family of artists all brought together all encouraging one another as us humans should x thank you wonderful outside in team for making us feel we belong x

    I love what Marc says about the charity doing its job and not being needed any more. What a world that would be! Bring it on! <3

    Wow, I didn’t realise there were people out there championing for disabled artists as myself. I have been struggling for a while to break into the art world but feel my disabilities had not been considered, so this is an amazing recognition on my part. Keep up the excellent work.
