Collection: Michelle Baharier

Michelle Baharier is a visual artist. Her style is strongly influenced by her experience of disability and she has spent many years advocating inclusion. She has experienced mental health challenges first hand and also struggles with the hurdles she faces because of dyslexia. Michelle grew up in a time when people did not understand dyslexia. For this reason, she was often treated poorly, mocked and put-down by others. In some ways this has made her the person she is today, stronger and keen to talk about her experiences, but in her younger years it made her vulnerable and led to mental health issues which it has taken her considerable time to overcome.

People just think I’m thick.

Michelle has exhibited widely, most recently with the South London Women Artists at Amp Gallery and also at the WOW festival in Royal Festival Hall. Michelle’s style is bold and unflinching. She is keen to explore inner conflict, the extremes of love and hate, hope and despair. The vulnerabilities which she lays bare in her work are motivated by a deep need to celebrate individuality and imperfection and, by doing so, build a better world.

Disabled artist, michelle baharier poses for a picture in her home surrounded by her artworkMichelle has dyslexia and is a disabled artist. She has dyed red hair and holds her face in her hands. She looks a little uncertain. Her paintings are all on canvas in the background. They are bright and colourful.

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.
