Business Name: Artypeace and Get Bognor Social
Question 1: Give us a brief description of your business. How you help people? What makes you unique?
I am primarily a childrens book illustrator and artist and have started a company called Artypeace which aims to help unleash the therapeutic benefits of creativity. We have been running workshops for both children and adults in the Bognor area focusing on mindful art.
Alongside this I founded a non profit organization called Get Bognor social. Our aim with the group is to reduce social isolation and loneliness within our community by taking people out on events where they can connect with each other in a safe and secure setting. GBS runs hand in hand with Artypeace and we have held many art sessions through the group which have turned out to be perfect ice breakers for our members.
Question 2: Why do you love your business and what you do?
I get to do what I love every day which is lots of drawing and colouring in. I love sharing everything I have learnt over the years with others and watching their creative spark ignite.
Watching how peoples lives have changed since joining GBS still humbles me, constant friendships are being made. My biggest joy has, and always will be seeing people happy and I am lucky enough to have a job and hobby that does that.
