On this page I want to present some of my favorite free accessible WordPress themes.
Some of the themes on this list are created by me. I am not affiliated with the other theme authors, I simply like their themes and I hope you do to.

Gridd is an incredibly versatile theme and you can change the layout of the different parts of your webiste in the customizer. Gridd is a fast, high quality theme developed by wplemon.
The theme has a bit of a learning curve, but if you want a theme that you can adapt it is well worth it. It has accessible color options and large font sizes.

Billie is a responsive, accessible blog theme. The theme has two optional menus (including a social menu), several different sidebars and a footer widget area that will hold any number of widgets.
The theme is compatible with the new block editor, and also includes a Call To Action button and two page sections that you can combine with your front page.
I recommend that you install the Jetpack plugin to make full use of supported features like featured content, contact forms, testimonials, social sharing and more. To create a portfolio, install Jetpack and create your projects, all the templates are already shipped with the theme. Billie also works well with WooCommerce.
