Janice Sylvia Brock is a truly gifted and inspirational artist. Originally from Manchester, Janice started suffering from severe rheumatoid arthritis as a child, which resulted in her spending a lot of time in hospital – a condition she will live with for the rest of her life. It was here that her love for painting began. Despite her disability preventing her from being able to take her offered place at Manchester College of Art, the condition has far from stopped her achieving phenomenal success and her compassionate nature shines through in the work she has done to help others. She now has 2 studios; one in the beautiful Cheshire countryside and one overlooking the ocean in Barbados. Her work, which has sold for up to US$200,000, hangs in collections across the globe, including 2 at The White House in America. She also uses her art to help others. She offers art therapy in prisons, psychiatric hospitals and nursing homes and she works tirelessly to improve the quality of life for disabled people in the UK and Barbados and has donated work that has raised over US$250,000. Janice talks to Sandro in an awe-inspiring way about living positively with her disability, why art can be so therapeutic and how she instinctively lives with so much compassion for helping others.
