"It gives me a purpose. And everybody needs a purpose." - Toni Lane, Resident Artist

Toni is just one of the 40 resident artists who make Art Enables their creative and professional home. She’s also a beloved member of our staff as our Studio Assistant.

The art Toni and her colleagues create tells honest, unfiltered, and powerful stories. Their work fills a hole in the art world, making it more inclusive and, quite simply, better.

At Art Enables, we believe that artists living with disabilities and mental health challenges are vital to a robust arts landscape and their talents are important contributions to the community. This video shows in no uncertain terms why.

When you watch Toni’s story, you’ll hear her personal account of the impact your support has made in her life — and understand why our shared work is so very important.
