Visibly Abled, Invisibly Disabled 2015-2016
The drawings made in this series were for an exhibition that was the result of working with the charities Fixers UK and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome UK. The portraits depict several young people who have been diagnosed with the genetic disorder Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). The condition affects the connective tissue in the body and can debilitate sufferers and in some cases affect the sufferer’s length of life. The aim of the portraits is to raise awareness of this little known illness and depict strong young people who are living full, active lives in spite of the condition.
