Emma Plover - Artist


About

Through my creative practice, I explore my relationship to the spaces and landscapes I call home.

I'm interested in the ways I share these spaces with those around me, especially those who aren’t often seen.

By giving voice to my rural Queer experience, I seek to explore how my ADHD influences my practice as an artist and my experience of the world.

Accessibility

I have ADHD and I consider myself Neurodiverse.

I pioneer support for people with mental health disabilities / people who define as Neurodiverse and their access to the arts.

I aim to challenge stigma, discrimination and prejudice towards mental health and I am open to discussing my conditions and how these affect me.

Please contact me for my access doc.
