So this is the bit where I get to talk about myself…and as an ‘artist’ this should be easy right?! WRONG! I’m just me. Rhian! But as a biography that is pretty poor…so here goes!
I live with my husband, two daughters and our dog in a small village in South West Wales. I grew up in the next village over so as you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a home bird! I became a Mami to my first beautiful little girl in 2017 who simply made me. And our second daughter arrived during the strangest year ever, 2020 and saved me from going stir crazy in lockdown! I am blessed with the best family anyone could ask for – without them I’d be nothing. Becoming a mam is probably the scariest thing to ever happen to me and yet it’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever achieved. I am also an auntie to two wonderful nephews who mean the world to me! Lazy pyjama days are my most favourite kind of days. I love music, coffee, snow, chocolate, online shopping and America! I hate toothpaste, buttons, sand and any kind of animal cruelty.
The thing that probably stands out most about me though, rightly or wrongly, is the fact that I am disabled. The wheelchair kind of disabled. Does it define me? Nope. Has it shaped me? Most definitely! And this is why I think I have found the right vocation for me. Kids are so brutally honest and non-judgmental. They just want to get answers for their innocent curiosity. And I love nothing more than when my little clients grill me on my disability and take rides in my wheelchair 🙂
