Vibrant Art Experiences

By an Autistic Artist

The beauty of art and everyday life collide to make something new. I'm building a community around color, art and enjoying the little things in life. My goal is to add to the world while connecting with people who enjoy my work.

Sharing wonder and joy with the world is something I believe in. There's beauty in the everyday lives we lead, as well as in swirls of paint. I'm always pushing to discover something new or find a new way to talk about difficult things. I hope my work brings you joy and the knowledge that you are not alone.

When I first beheld the original, I was ecstatic. The texture of the canvas surface with paint thrilled me more than I expected. Each stroke of color layered in a purposeful manner but flowing as elegantly as notes from a well tuned cello. Oh my, the blend of color in each stroke is an image in its own right!

Encircling the painting, you can very faintly read the words "colorful beautiful joyful fun playful rainbow texture impasto vivid"]

(Today's News) Autistic moment: I realized I have to turn music down in order to eat. - April Marie Mai (Keep on Autisticing. The best way to Autistic is to just do it.) Text on a grainy abstract orange, pink, blue, black, fuchsia, and peach background. **This is my own experience as an autistic person and is in no way a representation of all autistic people, nor is it saying that non-autistic people may not experience this, too. It was just a super autistic moment that made me laugh, so I'm sharing it.**

Three detail snapshots of paintings from my Color Explosion series created this summer, with the words, "Summer memories" written on the polaroid stub of the photos, with orange spray roses in the bottom right corner and green leaves in the top right corner.

Summer Memories of Painting

Each painting I create is an adventure. Three detail snapshots of paintings from my Color Explosion series created this summer, with the words, "Summer memories" written on the polaroid stub of the photos, with orange spray roses in the bottom right corner and green leaves in the top right corner.
