As we all plodded through Lockdown 2020, I did something a little different. I took part in a brand new art competition series for Channel 4 called Drawers Off.

"Comedian Jenny Eclair is to present a brand-new Daytime format on Channel 4. In Drawers Off, amateur artists reveal their naked ambition as they compete to win a cash prize by creating life-portraits of each other." - Channel 4

It was amazing opportunity to be representing both the games industry and disabilities on national television. Given the filming restrictions due to Covid, I was impressed by the production's ability to ensure I felt supported and had all the information I needed.

This is the first time I have done anything on television and first time I have really shown myself as an artist, so as you can imagine I was super nervous! I have a deep love of life drawing and have always tried to find classes and groups to take part in where ever I was. But actually becoming the model.... not a chance. 😂

So how will I fair becoming the model? Well, you'll have to watch.

Catch me during the second week, competing to win the prize and be named artist of the week from Monday 8th March on Channel 4 at 5.30pm. Feel free to cheer me on and support me on Twitter with the #DrawersOff !
