A letter to me about living with disability by Chelsea

Chelsea took part in an art exhibition by the NUHS Project Dreamcatchers – a support group for teenagers and young adults living with chronic and terminal illness. It was a fantastic event that enabled some people who often sit on the sidelines to move to the center stage and demonstrate to their family, friends and the outside world here in Singapore that their disabilities in no way impede their creativity.

As part of the activity each artist had to write a letter about themselves and what it is like being them. This is Chelsea’s – together with some photos from the launch event for the exhibition.

Chelsea was honored to present a limited edition print from one of her Paintability paintings – Feather in Peace to the guest of Honor Mr Ng Chun Pin,Director of the National Youth Council of Singapore.
