We are delighted to welcome Ava Joliffe as our next artist and at 13 years old, the youngest exhibitor at the Arts Centre. From a very early age Ava showed an aptitude for drawing but at the age of 3 she was taken ill and quickly declined.
Despite being disabled with multiple complexities, Ava’s art progressed in both style and medium to her preferred medium of digital art. Ava’s future aspiration is to illustrate and publish children’s books and, as a British Sign Language user, she is also keen to promote and be an advocate for deaf and disabled artists in the UK.
Please take time to visit the Arts Centre and see Ava’s work from Tuesday 11th February to Thursday 5th March.
