In 2021 Sam Bailey partnered with renowned artist Steven Brown on an art project to raise awareness of autism and help raise funds for the National Autism Society.
‘Tommy McCoo’ is a special addition to Brown’s famous ‘McCoos’ collection and came to fruition after Sam’s son Tommy was diagnosed with Autism and Dyspraxia in 2020. After a conversation between Sam and Steven, who have been friends for years, about Tommy’s diagnosis Steven was inspired to create the design.

The painting is used to celebrate Tommy and the 700,000 autistic people in the UK.Not only... FULL STORY
