Zoe Kakolyris is a very talented artist who paints vivid scenes filled with a multitude of varied imaginary people. Her paintings are reminiscent of the world famous works of L.S. Lowry and Beryl Cook, yet they are completely unique, with throngs of brightly coloured children and adults on buses, waiting for trains, skiing or swimming. Zoe is 38 and lives in north London. As a result of a severe cold when she was a baby, she is profoundly deaf and also has Asperger syndrome. Zoe has often had a difficult time, particularly because of problems with obtaining correct diagnoses. Her deafness was not properly diagnosed until she was five while her Asperger syndrome was not recognised until she was 24. This obviously put a tremendous strain on Zoe and her family and especially her mother Artemis, who also has two other children.
