Daisy is a professional fine artist, creative director & strategist, writer and keynote speaker. She is the founder of Liberally, the UK’s only non-profit diverse creative talent and content agency. Established during Lockdown 2020, Liberally amplifies minoritised voices across gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability and LGBTQ+, to create space to belong.
Daisy is a proud queer, neurodivergent woman and mother of three young sons. She believes strongly that marginalised communities must have space to ignite self-expression and visibility, without their narratives getting lost in translation. The power of diverse thinking - driven by diverse backgrounds and life experiences - has never been more important, as we seek to solve some of the most challenging global problems our world has ever seen.
Daisy draws on two decades of creative communications experience working with global brands, as she contributes to making multiple industries more inclusive spaces for all through the strength of creative storytelling and belonging.
How has being Neurodivergent shaped the direction of your career?
Being neurodivergent has led to a diverse career history of many jobs. I always thought this was a failure but I now see it as a strength. I have a wide skill set and truly understand how to perform at my best. I am self-employed, working in bursts of productivity doing only what I feel passionate about.
What advice would you give to another Neurodivergent woman navigating their way through life?
Knowledge is crucial. Surround yourself with those who love and support the real you and mentors who lift you up. Be gentle with yourself; find ways of reminding yourself daily of all your strengths and accomplishments. Meditate, exercise, drink lots of water! Don't be afraid to live differently.
