I was honored to be invited out to chat with the Green Country Deaf-Blind group about the “Please Touch the Art” show at TCC! What a fun/ny group, I hope we get to make art together soon! If you haven’t gone to see/touch/smell “A Waffle”, the exhibit closes July 29th! “In the Hands” is on display at @tshatulsa if you’d like to check it out too!

An artist we absolutely love is Katrina of @bykatrinasophia. Her beautiful work focuses largely on all things green - flowers, plants, and a gorgeous new greenhouse addition - and handlettering, all of which we adore. She has also branched into the world of ceramics, with some gorgeous handcrafted necklaces and bowls. If you dig into her online shop, you will come across some cards like the one pictured, including one that has the BSL (British Sign Language) sign for ‘Love’. Katrina is such a talented artist, who also just happens to be deaf - she has written about this a few times on her Instagram - and we truly love to support her. Something we want to do on this platform we’re creating is to shine a spotlight on others. We believe that community and support is of the utmost importance. 🤟 at London, United Kingdom

Today is my birthday! I'm officially halfway through my thirties and I'm feeling great!⠀ ⠀ This year I don't want any "gifts". I want this year to be different and I plan to GIVE rather than receive.⠀ ⠀ HOW I PLAN TO GIVE BACK:⠀ For every purchase made through my shop, I will donate a percentage to my local deaf community center in Buffalo, N.Y., Deaf Access Services (DAS).⠀ ⠀ Supporting the Deaf Community is important to me. I am a hearing person with hearing kids, and I don't take using sign language to communicate with them lightly. It's a wonderful tool. ⠀ ⠀ But sometimes (MANY times) hearing people who use sign language with their children forget how vital ASL is the deaf. After attending classes and deaf events through DAS, I'm more aware than ever about the struggles of people who are deaf and hard of hearing.⠀ ⠀ JUST SOME OF WHAT I'VE LEARNED:⠀ 🌟Cochlear implants don't magically allow people to hear. They can help, but they can also be so much of a PIA that many people opt not to have them.⠀ 🌟Getting an interpreter for a simple doctor's appointment can be struggle. I've seen this with my own eyes: I was waiting in line to check out at my doctor and the office staff didn't want to pay for an interpreter for the upcoming appointment of the deaf woman in front of me. WTF? How is she supposed to understand what her doctor is saying???⠀ 🌟It's easy to say "oh never mind" or completely ignore someone who is deaf bc you feel like you can't communicate and you're embarrassed. That's rude. Go the extra mile to get your message across. 99% of the time, they'll appreciate your effort.⠀ ⠀ I won't pretend that a donation will "fix" things, but if I can promote awareness of the Deaf Community to hearing parents, then I feel like I've made a good start in the right direction.⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #deafculture #deafcultureawareness #languagedeprivation #speechtherapy #hardofhearing #hardofhearingkids #signlanguage #signlanguageinterpreter #deafbaby #deafkidsrock #babysignlanguage #handsignsforlittles #signlanguageart #gentleparenting #parenting #parentinglife #positiveparenting #consciousparenting #respectfulparenting #asl ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Family photos by @cortneestamponephotography

Before parenting, the concepts of clean and dirty was pretty straightforward. You were either clean or dirty. Simple.⠀ ⠀ Lately, I unabashedly subscribe to degrees of “eh, clean enough” 😆But, with summer now here, baths are necessary more often than not ... 🤷‍♀️⠀ ⠀ If you’re new here, these are a few of the ASL signs that will be on the bathroom poster I’m working on. More to come! 🤟⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #handsignsforlittles #babysignlanguage #babysigning #bathroomart #signlanguage #asl #signlanguageforchildren #deaf #deafcommunity #deafculture #signlanguageart #workinprogress💪 #wip #artwip #bathroom #kidsbathroom #dirtykids #dirty #clean #cleankids #squeakyclean #barsoap #rubberducky #rubberduck #rubberduckyyouretheone

"Hombre y Mujer" In the middle of a pool party, Paola, Daniel and I decided to collaborate on a photoshoot that involved their hands. . In this photo, Paola came up with the idea of using sign language to communicate their opposite genres. She is doing the sign of "man" while Daniel is doing the sign of "woman". . I LOVE doing anything with you guys, but art is my top favorite activity <3 Y'all are ameising (inside joke) #photography #art #photodrawing #models #cuties #signlanguage #signlanguageart #patterns #experimental #creative #artist #latinoart at Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Many uk signing families I know have adopted the American sign language for I Love you. Though people have different views of this I personally love it and you will see me and Harry signing it to each other at the school gates every morning. Xxx Our home family love sign prints can be bought as a collection or as single pieces. Love is available as bsl sign or asl I love you.

If all children learn to sign how amazing would that be, how would it shape our communication though to adulthood. With signing comes so many more skills than at first there seems, it is so much more that hand movements or comminucating with those that cannot hear.... My family have learnt so much more than just how to comminicate with Harry and we have been blown away by the impact it can have. xxx #signingfamily #signlanguage #proud #bsl #asl #britishsignlanguage #signingforchildren #signing #learntosign #childsbedroomdecor #giftforsigning #signlanguageart #smallbusiness #fellowsouthwoodmaven #signingmummy #smallbuisiness

Just learned that today is National ASL Day!🤟🏻& how freakin fitting that I just signed up for a 6 week ASL course earlier today not even knowing!?🙌🏻🙏🏻 I randomly took a semester of ASL about a decade ago in college with my BFF and remember a little. I’ve been teaching Caleb a bunch of basic signs (thanks to my memory from that class but mostly thanks to YouTube & Baby Signing Time) but I’m super excited to learn more and teach him (& the rest of the family) even more of this beautiful language and give Caleb as much access to total communication as possible .🤟🏻💙🤟🏻💚🤟🏻 #nationalaslday #asl #iloveyou #calebconor #hearingloss #hearinglossawareness #dhh #sensorineuralhearingloss #hardofhearing #americansignlanguage #signlanguage #aslclass #totalcommunication #accessibility #signlanguageart #aslart #iloveyouart #watercolorpainting #watercolor #nofilter #momlife at Tampa, Florida

SO I only have 3 pieces left of my On Deaf Ears collection from the end of last year, and they are still for sale as original pieces!! This one is ‘RESPECT’ in British Sign Language, and because I’m feeling a bit creative I’m going to be doing some weird and wonderful things in between commissions with the last 3 so keep an EYE OUT!!! #artistsoninstagram #art #blackandwhitedrawing #arty #drawing #handdrawing #wallart #muralart #artforsale #hyperrealism #hyperrealisticart #sketch #sketchbook #pencildrawing #pencilartwork #pencilart #britishsignlanguage #signlanguageart

#marchmeetthemaker Day 12 - Hands at work Well literally hands drawing hands in my case.. Most of my illustrations are PC based, I use a stylus and tablet to draw directly onto the computer, sketching and refining my images. I am a very chaotic drawer so I love the versatility it gives me to refine my style and make it what it is now.... #illustratorsoninstagram #drawinghands #signlanguageart #artistsoninstagram #designsfordeaf #etsysellersofinstagram #lovewhatyoudo #proudmummy #signingmummy #drawingmummy #smallbuisiness #inspiredbykids #learntosign #fellowsouthwoodmaven

How can we all be more inclusive to those with hearing impairment??? Maybe its learning some sign language.... Maybe its teaching the people you work with about great deaf awareness.... Maybe its teaching your kids about the different kinds of hearing aids and implants...... Awareness, inclusion, and kindness to those with differences is sooo important... Happy world hearing day to you all. xxx

Day 1 #marchmeetthemaker Favourite to make. This is the first of my ASL illustrations...started due to so many requests... Childrens names are probably my favourite thing to create...for each name i like to know the age its appealing to and love to spend time ensuring the illustrations perfectly blend and compliment the name...with repeat letters i never use the same illustration and love to creat new illustrations if the design doesnt fit or someone wants all animals....this way I feel each print is unique and special to that person...made with the love and respect it deserves....xxx #favouritemakes #illustratorsoninstagram #smallbusiness #fellowsouthwoodmaven #americansignlanguage #britishsignlanguage #hearingimpairedart #signlanguageart #artistsoninstagram #lovewhatyoudo

The gift of Magic ears is such an amazing thing.....The technology behind what gives the hearing impaired access to sound is breathtaking and the continued advancement of this technology enables us to see our children have different choices for their futures. As a parent to a deaf child i celebrate this technology and all that it gives my son access to, I also celebrate sign language and the connection it gives us no matter what. Whatever your path through hearing impairment...celebrate it, allow it not to define you but to enrich your life.....XXX

As your children grow you always want to help them reach their full potential...there is nothing more frustrating, as a parent, than people who say...he is doing so well for a deaf child...or ... most deaf children achieve so and so. Dont put them in a box that aims your and thier expectations lower....give them all the tools and support they need to get to the top - wherever that may be. All children can reach the stars if they want to...and they should feel that every day! Empower our kids to be all they can be....no matter what.

Another snow picture but it sums up my Harry and so many children with additional needs...I say additional needs very specifically as that little determined cheeky face is not defined by being deaf...like all kids.... They are funny, cheeky, determined, stubborn, shy, mad and every other wonderful word you can thing of they are not their difference......but they do know how to love and embrace what makes them different...This picture, to me, says it all. xxx

Fingerspelling is the centre of all things BSL (and ASL in fairness) many words connect with their starting letter to aid in understanding. Do you know how to spell your name in sign language...such a fun way to start your signing journey. FUN GAME - Grab a poster of the signed alphabet and with your family (maybe after dinner or something) see if you can all spell your name. If thats fun you can add sign and guess to your game. Someone signs the word and everyone has to guess what they are signing. For those at spelling age this is an amazing way to work through the spelling of key words in a fun way but also teaches them an amazing new skill. Have a go..... at Love Harry X
