Our son Max was born 7th October 2007 with Down syndrome. My reaction and instinct was to combine my interest and experience in the arts with meeting talented individuals with the condition.
I discovered there were artists all over the world with Down syndrome and was determined that their work should be more widely celebrated.

Plans began for a small ‘pilot’ exhibition at my local Arts Festival in Cheshire, England, which was really well received. Visitors commented on the quality of the art, the professional way in which it had been marketed, the overall high standard of the exhibition. This was thanks to Matt Maurer, Director at Mr.M mrmideasstudio.com and my husband and photographer, Paul Moffat moff.co.uk
This pilot was the launch pad for Heart & Sold.
We want to give artists with Down Syndrome, as well as their family and friends, an opportunity to use Heart & Sold as a platform – to create, educate, inspire, sell and most importantly promote the idea that art is from the heart and has nothing to do with the condition.
Please enjoy our site where you can read profiles of contributing artists and buy limited edition prints of their works. Originals are also available for sale – email firstname.lastname@example.org for all enquires.
