People with invisible and sensory disabilities need you to respond in a non-judgmental fashion and support the individual to cope.

As a part of our “Unstoppable” series, we had the pleasure of interviewing artist Michelle Baharier.

Michelle Baharier is a critically acclaimed multimedia & Interdisciplinary Fine Artist based in London, UK. A recipient of the coveted Jullian Sullivan Award for Achievement in Fine Art Media from the Slade School of Fine Art, she exhibits internationally across the UK, USA, Europe, and the Middle East.

Known for founding CoolTan Arts, an arts and mental health charity, in her artwork Baharier invites the viewer to gaze at brilliantly coloured faces, encouraging reflection on their own emotional state. Her oeuvre addresses the many barriers that she and others face due to disability, discrimination and prejudice.
