Individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities have exceptional talents as artists, they have a capability for uninhibited self expression that many an artist would envy.

They are also brilliant at living in the moment and practicing art in a mindful way, something we could all learn from.

Individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) tend to have multiple physical, cognitive and sensory impairments and are likely to experience epileptic seizures and need a high level of care making some people forget to recognise them as the artists they have the potential to be.
