Art, Autism, Becky and Me
My daughter, Becky, has autism and developmental delays. She has also always loved to create art. My paintings portray surreal landscapes as visual metaphors for the feelings of someone with autism. I place images of Becky within these worlds. In this show, Becky and I share the gallery space and our joint need to express ourselves through our art.
