ARTIST PROFILE

Sarah Leonard

Bio

I am a Scottish artist, working in Glasgow. I have been an Artist in Residence working with adults with learning difficulties since 2016. My portraiture project is ongoing and I am learning a lot from the awesome people I' m working with. We have exhibited widely and I have given artist's talks at Conferences in Chicago, Madrid and Glasgow. My portraiture calls for the viewer to see the person, not the disability, the beauty and colour and personality of the work beyond the limited restrictions of what we think we know about that individual's ability, and that there is a lot to learn. My projects have evolved to include film, interview and photography and sound installation, as well as drawing and painting to present, in our exhibitions, a complete picture of a unique community of awesome people.
