Empowering artists and changing lives

ARTHOUSE Unlimited is a collective of artists who live with learning disabilities and complex epilepsy. The artists require varying levels of assistance and many live in supported accommodation at The Meath Epilepsy Charity in Surrey.

The artists create their work at sessions led by professional art tutors and these artworks are developed into designs for sale. 100% of the revenue ARTHOUSE Unlimited raises goes back into the charity: they aim to challenge perceptions and create better acceptance and inclusion for all people living with disabilities. Currently ARTHOUSE Unlimited represents artists in Surrey, but they hope to expand their reach, working with more artists in towns around the UK.

Isobel's Story

I’m 23 years old and I live in the new building at the Meath Epilepsy Trust. I’ve only been there a few months, before I lived there I was at Young Epilepsy, another college.

Epilepsy has always been part of my life since I was young. I have night time seizures quite regularly and sometimes have day seizures. Epilepsy makes you very tired.

I love drawing, it calms me down, makes me feel more independent and working with other artists is fun.

My favourite person in the world is my dog Juno, he is a golden Labrador and part of the family.

ARTHOUSE Unlimited exists to celebrate and promote the work of the artists, providing a sense of purpose and as a result, improved health and wellbeing. Every time you buy a card you help validate an artist's work.
