Give Yourself Time to Really Rest.
I make art and I share in little doses. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful. I educate on my experiences and knowledge with Autism, etc.
I like to turn those “A winner is…” quotes on their head by remaking them into something better! This photograph reminds me of my love of skydiving. I miss it!
[Image Description: “A winner is just a person who is extremely stubborn. Yep, it’s you. Don’t argue with me.
-April Marie Mai” in all-capitals white text on a photograph taken from above blue clouds.]
I’m rarely 100% serious. ;)
What makes up your sense of humor? Share in the comments!

This is how I’ve always felt!
“So much art to make in such little time! -April Marie Mai”
I could fill many lifetimes with artmaking. In the meantime, I have to pick and choose between ideas, because I only have one life. ;)
I like to share my thoughts and experiences with you, as well as my process, and not just finished works of art. I hope you’re up for more insights into my processes and my experiences. I’m so glad you’re here!
What content do you look forward to seeing?

In case you’re new or don’t know much about me, here’s a little snippet of who I am and what you can expect here.
It’s all about sharing my art for you to enjoy and working to make a better world together.
Tell me about yourself, what you enjoy from my posts, and what you hope to see more of. :)

Hello! I’m an Autistic ADHDer queer disabled artist who shares my art, love of plants, and thoughts.
I create because I need to, I share it for you to enjoy, and I hope that you will share it with others. My goals are to share things that bring you joy, sell my work through my website and advocate for others by sharing my experiences.

Switch it all off, go outside, and immerse yourself in green. – April Marie Mai

I hope you get a chance to enjoy the weather or a greenhouse sometime soon!
Having time being surrounded by plants is so important to my mental health.
What colors are your trees currently?
