A Note from Cheryl
'I would like to thank the funders & partners that have made my Commission possible. As a disabled artist, every day, I feel myself growing; challenging myself as an artist & as a human being, in every aspect of my practice. Having this time to step fully into my work has already opened so many new possibilities for the future, pushing boundaries & changing steretypes ... & that is before I have even launched the work. It is life changing. Deepest gratitude ... ' - Cheryl Beer
