Geraldine Crimmins, the new artist in residence at the Old Diorama Arts Centre, has recently become self-employed thanks to her art and photography.

Despite passing a “not fit for work” test which allowed an Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Café Art artist and photographer Geraldine has focused on art to get back into employment with the help of the National Enterprise Scheme.
