Please explain your edits on the Talk page. The material you reverted is well-sourced. Why is it non-neutral to refer to employment before artistic career? Origins are an integal part of biographies; and likewise in sources, Jo Self refers to her dyslexia in positive terms as part of the way she functions as an artist - it's even on the front page of her own website. Compare Susan Hampshire.
You might also wish to take part in the ongoing discussions at WP:COIN#Jo Self. If, as suspected, you are Jo Self, it would make things easier for everyone involved with the article, including yourself, to deal with this openly. Gordonofcartoon (talk) 23:21, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
