We just had to share Ayesha Chappell’s story with you. Ayesha, 19, came third in the special needs category of the Schools Art Competition last year.
Ayesha, a former pupil at Clippens School in Linwood, has profound and multiple disabilities. With a little help from someone to steady her hand, she painted this fantastic picture which hung in the national gallery in Edinburgh for six months. It is now toruing the country!
Ayesha hopes to follow her artistic dreams and has a place at James Watt College next year where she will be studying art and drama. Before you ask, her painting is not for sale at present as it is too precious to her mum and dad but if she keeps going in this direction, who knows, she may have a gallery of her own in the future!
