Providing bespoke care nationwide for clients with spinal injuries and neurological conditions
My name is Sarah Yeo, one of TCC’s clients, and I am a local artist who paints by mouth, currently living with my partner Richard in Bodmin, Cornwall.
I am paralysed from the neck down and because of my love of arts and crafts, I have learned to adapt with how I can paint and make the products myself along with a little help from my team.
All my paintings are originals using watercolour and acrylic paints. Alongside my team, we also create gifts and beautiful Fimo Clay jewellery. Each bracelet, pendant, or earrings are created by hand, rolled and dusted with pearlescent Mica powders and acrylic paints. My inspiration for my paintings, jewellery collections and gifts comes from the beaches and countryside of Cornwall. Picking up ideas, colours and textures on my journeys throughout Cornwall.
I also run 1 day workshops demonstrating how art and tapping into your own creativity can help improve motivation, self esteem, relaxation of the mind, clarity and focus. In each workshop everyone designs their own vision board, learning how colour can affect the mind/moods and relaxing with a guided meditation. A day of creative fun, sharing experiences in a friendly supportive environment.
