Kim Rance

United Kingdom

I'm 59 years old and live with my partner and 3 cats in Mere (UK). My Partner has been unofficially diagnosed with ASD and I am highly likely to be ADHD with other possible comorbidities. We are both on long waiting lists for assessment and struggle with our various symptoms. I have recently taken the qualification for Indian Head Massage for ASC and ADHD children and Adults by Giuliana Wheater and passed. I aim to help people and pets who are anxious. I have recently volunteered as the Secretary for a small local ASC group in the smallest town in Wiltshire, UK. I paint as a pastime and enjoy the company as my mobility is comprised as I wait for a spine operation. This picture is a slice of the brain of an ADHDer, and how it ruminates, moves, and dives throughout the day and at night. "The Restless Brain" it's called.

The artists' stories

"The Vibrant Mind" is an art contest that celebrates artistic expression from individuals with mental health conditions. By focusing on the artists' work rather than their various diagnoses, it hopes to promote a stigma-free and inclusive environment.


That being said, the participants were given the option to share their background stories if they wished to do so. They can be found in alphabetical order to the right.
