Today we take the microphones “across the pond” to interview a dynamic creative force whose work is celebrated in England and around the world. Jordan invites you to meet inter-disciplinary artist Michelle Baharier. She recounts enormous challenges as a child trying to read and write and how the kindness of a helpful teacher made such a difference in her life. Art has always been Michelle’s outlet and mode of expression. And she is certainly great at it! She is constantly drawing and sketching, achieving notoriety for her poetry, photography, painting, dress making and so much more. She lives and works in South London and exhibits internationally across the UK, Europe, the USA and Middle East. She is also the Artistic Director/Founder and CEO of the charity CoolTan Arts, run by and for disabled people.
