Collection: Michael Lymbery

Michael is a member of Artrack, an art group run by the National Autistic Society. Michael has been part of the group for twenty years! He enjoys the familiarity of the studio and his fellow artists. He describes feeling happy whilst working on his artwork; having a focus and an outlet for his creativity is important to him. Knowing that others appreciate and enjoy his work is also immensely important to Michael and he is very proud of his Art Rabble portfolio.

Disabled artist, Michael Lymbery in art studio pen and ink drawing

Michael has an exceptional eye for detail, something that is evident in all of his work. His pen and ink compositions draw heavily on hatching techniques which heighten interest and create depth to great effect. He has a particular interest in portraits and his more stylized figures, Man and Man II, are bold and intriguing figures.

Art Rabble Christmas Cards

We all want to do our bit to help others at Christmas and buying charity Christmas cards is a great way to do this. However, not all "charity" cards are as generous as others. Many popular supermarket cards contribute only a fraction of their proceeds to charity. At Art Rabble, we try to give as much as we possibly can back to our artists; currently this is 50p out of every £3. We do this because we want disabled artists to be paid generously for their skills and effort.

We would like to pay our artists a larger amount but while major retailers benefit from economies of scale, for us small print runs are costly and delivery (as a percentage of sale value) is high. However, with the continued support of our lovely customers, we hope we can increase volume over time, therefore lowering our costs.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our Christmas cards - we hope you love them. We are so proud of the work our artists do, if you can help us spread the word, all the better! Happy Christmas to all.
