Deafblind art on display in capital show.

THE work of a Birmingham deafblind artist has been selected for a national exhibition.

Helene Ryles, from Yardley, is exhibiting Lord of the Rings-inspired Ceramic Pieces and short story Leading the Way during Touching Art, at artsdepot's Apthorp Gallery, in North Finchley, London, for two weeks from July 4 to 15.

Profoundly deafblind, Helene receives support from the national deafblind charity, Sense, which is based in Sandwell.

Helene's work will go on display to help promote Deafblind Awareness Week which starts on Monday.

At birth Helene was diagnosed with a mild hearing impairment but over the years her hearing deteriorated to the point of profound deafness. She primarily communicates expressively using speech and receptively through the use of deafblind manual signing. The art show is part of the Israeli-based Nalaga'at theatre group's visit to the UK.
