Portraits Untold

July 28, 2016

Disabled artist Tanya Raabe-Webber’s new project is examining what connects us as humans.

Called Portraits Untold, she is painting four people who have achieved “great things” – including Dame Evelyn Glennie, a profoundly deaf percussionist, and Neil Baldwin, the Stoke City FC mascot who has a learning disability and was subject of the award-winning film Marvellous.

As she paints, she and the sitter have a conversation exploring diversity and humanity to “discover the fact that we are a united species of human beings”.
