Originally from Buckinghamshire, Autistic Ian was born with bags of artistic talent, but also a severe stammer and high-functioning autism. After suffering a mental breakdown in 2012 and losing everything, Ian only recently began to draw again and quickly gained a high-profile following in the culinary world for his interpretations of chefs and their restaurants. Today, after meeting with our very own Michelin-starred chef, Ashley Palmer-Watts, Ian can showcase his incredible talent to the world with his first-of-a-kind collaboration with Artisan Coffee Co.
