Liz and Lou met a few years ago through their children’s school and soon realised they had studied the same degree in Brighton.  Recently, they have collaborated on several successful creative projects and work as a great team which motivated them to set up Superstreet Gallery.

Both artists have personal experience of the benefits art and creative activities provide in supporting both physical and mental wellbeing.  They are passionate about promoting art for wellbeing through different workshops for specific groups.
