Lee Samuel is the creative mind behind Studio Two.

Hello, my name is Lee Samuel, and I am an enthusiastic creative passionate about making art accessible within our community. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a teaching certificate, I bring strong drawing and painting skills to the table. Over the past 7 years, I've worked with both large groups and one-on-one students.

Operating from my home studio, I offer private lessons tailored to children, teens, adults, and individuals with disabilities. I also go into schools to run art workshops for children and teachers. As a people person, I excel in quickly building rapport with those around me.

Since 2019, I've had the privilege of working with clients who have disabilities ranging from intellectual disabilities to traumatic brain injuries, strokes, autism, motor neurone disease, and other chronic health conditions. Through attentive listening and an open-minded approach, I've cultivated strong relationships with my clients.

I believe in empowering my clients by providing them with information and education, allowing them to guide the path they want to lead. Enabling a good life is always the primary focus of my practice.

Currently, I am pursuing my Level 4 in Health and Wellbeing, with graduation expected in July 2024. I welcome all inquiries for creative and disability-based work
