Artist Statement

Life isn’t black and white. Let’s embrace some color! My inspiration came from being a mother with a child on the Autism Spectrum. I see the world with a new set of eyes. I have learned to live outside of the box. We all have a way of doing things, but learning to embrace the differences we have allows us to come together and be a United front. We become knitted together, not easily torn apart. This painting is a representation of us being knitted together. It represents my love, it represents my embrace, it represents my hope that more and more people will come together and understand that, although we are all very different, coming together is what makes us strong!
