I'm an autistic queer disabled artist who loves color and texture. My work is beautiful, expressive, and raw all at the same time. Some of my art addresses difficult topics. I create work that feeds my soul, and I hope it feeds yours, too. -April

I have Aphantasia, meaning I can't picture things in my mind. The Color Explosion series is a joy. I control the paint, but I never know what it will look like until it's finished.

The You Be You, I'll Be Me series is an ode to our differences, seeing them, and celebrating them. It is especially a celebration of the LGBTQ community, of which I am a part. This celebration is a protest against all who hurt us with legislation, hateful sermons, and personal prejudices.

The Kaleidoscope series is a fun experiment with repetitions. I love it because I never know what will happen next.
