As an Artist on the Autistic Spectrum, life and living in a world that is not deisned for a people with Autism, presents many challenges. It is often overwhelming and confusing. Therefore, art for me, is so much more than creating ‘pritty pictures’. Painting is a way to be a part of a world that does not always make sense. Through my art I aim to show you what I see and to share a common understanding and appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.
So many aspects of our ever-expanding digitally absorbing world formulates a life style that is fast, instant and disposable.
We glance with little time to observe, head down with no chance of noticing the beauty that we are passing.
Employing oil paints in a representational manner, my art draws you, the viewer, into the space of stillness and absorption, offering the chance to take a journey ‘beyond the canvas’, in which you can discover personal meaning and inward escape.
