I’ve worked for Sense for almost two decades in many different roles. More than ten years ago, I met Kevin who was then a young man using Sense day services and living at home with his mum.
Back then I was an education tutor who led art sessions, and my connection with Kevin focused around creativity and art. I’d support and encourage Kevin who’d create beautiful pieces often focused on important events in his life. I particularly recall one piece Kevin created, which was a painting of a beautiful garden, about the passing of his father.
Over the years we built a friendship, and art was our way of connecting.
