Bethany (b. 2011) has CHARGE Syndrome which is a rare genetic disorder.
Bethany lives in a completely silent world; she is profoundly deaf and is a kinaesthetic visual learner whose first language is BSL (British Sign Language).
Bethany’s time at the studio enables her to express her emotions through various media - so crucial when she can neither hear not speak
Bethany is one of our younger artists, who started at the studio in 2017. She is a natural little maker who loves learning as well as taking time to explore mediums and materials in her own explorative way, especially materials that are tactile and sticky.
Bethany's artwork has been awarded by the Turner Contemporary in 2019.
