THE MODEL

"The only thing better than teaching about the importance of identity is being part of showing it!" - Leo

 

I have modelled for the Welcome Project, worked with an artist creating a collection of paintings and modelled for artists at the Tate Britain.

GreatArt

Collaborating with Figuration.co I modelled at the art supply store GreatArt. A group of artists were invited to sketch me whilst I spoke about my experiences of disability and gender.   “

The Welcome Project

In 2014 I was part of project that looked at different body types. I modelled alongside amputees, to create a collection of photographs looking at the strengths of disabled bodies.

I was invited to film with independent film makers MyGenderation (http://mygenderation.com/)  to make a documentary called TransAND. This short film is about who I am and my transition journey.

Beneath The Skin

This was a two year project with artist, Annabel Mednick. Through oil paintings, sketches and installation, we showed that despite my differences, I can model and be captured to show beyond my disability.

Tate Britain

This was a once in an life time experience. I modelled in the Henry Moore Gallery for about 30 sitting artists. At the same time I conducted an open discussion about the challenges of modelling with Cerebral Palsy as well as asking the artists what it was like to draw somebody with involuntary moments.
