Collaboration with people affected by homelessness and mental illness

James Lewis

James has donated his work in the hope that his creation benefits people struggling with homelessness. 

I truly feel blessed for all opportunities that come my way where I get to help those who are less fortunate through my artwork. The Hopeful Traders collaboration isn't simply another one of these opportunities, it resonates with me on a deeper level as I was once homeless myself. Following the loss of my parents at a young age, and a series of unforeseen events I found myself living off sofas and broken camp beds, with no fixed address, all whilst still being in school. If it wasn't for homeless charities like Llamau, who supported me through a troubling time, I certainly would not be the man I am today. I genuinely feel honoured that I can give back through this project and many more in the future.
