Art_For_A_Dream

Kayleigh Richardson

Artist Statement:

          Inspired by growing up in the Lake District, UK, I tend to explore natural forms and idealistic landscapes. Some of my more recent work has been instigated by my travels to Asia and Africa where I worked closely with local communities. In Laos, South East Asia, I was involved with a community center teaching English and Drama and also helping the locals with their farm work. In Ghana, Africa I taught craft classes which the children loved getting involved with! And also took part in the clinics Outreach service - traveling around even more remote villages providing life saving medical care. I worked with an Ghanaian artist during my visit and have been inspired to create images using the techniques I've learnt since I have been back in England. I love to give something back to the amazing people I have met, through sending a percentage of each art sale to Ankoma Outreach to pay for much needed medicine, clean water and mosquito nets.
