  • How to be autistic by Charlotte Amelia Poe
  • Nnena Kalu with large Sculptural Forms
  • Anxiety

"I was fortunate to have Sacha and Mary mentoring me, both via email, at my home in Scotland and over the phone.

I had more or less hidden away being fearful of networking, exhibition openings etc. Both Mary and Sacha have been supportive and kind and taken me at my own speed.

I have been working with Sacha on a proposal for an exhibition which, for me, is extremely important for my growth as an artist and how I navigate the art world moving forward." DAWNNE MCGEACHY

"The Spectrum Art Prize made me realise how important it is to be an autistic artist. It also helped me to understand that there are people out there who genuinely want to celebrate autistic people and what we are capable of. It feels so vitally important and I feel humbled to have been a part of it." CHARLOTTE AMELIA POE

"Being a part of the Prize has given me more optimism and confidence in my work, and lots of new ideas, I am thankful for the support." PETER MATTHEWS
