Tanya Raabe-Webber

Tanya Raabe-Webber is an acclaimed disabled/visual artist challenging the notion of identity within contemporary portraiture, often creating portraits of high profile disabled and diverse people during live sittings in high profile public art galleries and venues. She uses a mixture of traditional and digital painting and drawing techniques, often fusing the two together in an interactive live environment, inviting physical and online audiences to join in. She has worked with a wide range of organisations, including Apple, The Big Draw, BBC4, National Trust and Hull City of Culture.

Raabe-Webber is also an established leader and mentor to other artists and a specialist in supporting learning disability artists and artists practice. In 2015 she set up ArtStudio01 (AS01): an inclusive artists collective in Shrewsbury now supporting 11 learning disabled artists in their creative and professional practice.
