This year we decided to spread some festive joy with the help of Shruti, an artist represented by Artbox London who work with artists with autism and learning disabilities.
Shruti’s piece, one of the many of her creations, is inspired by winter. We were pleased to commission it and look forward to posting the Christmas cards out to our friends and partners. Shruti says,
“I feel interested when making art, it’s like my heart. I love being an artist. Happy, excited – I do more. My life is artist. My mum is so proud of me. When she comes home from work, I show her my artwork and she says ‘wow’. I feel happy and proud of myself.”
Thank you, Shruti and Artbox London!
