The Neuro-Diversity Project

Over the past few months my studio mates and I have been collaborating with a group of children on the autism spectrum to create a body of work that will hang in the Studio 4, Old Town gallery the month of September. Project creator, artist and mother to a child on the autism spectrum, Gina Cochran has paired professional artist volunteers to work with the children one on one. “We wanted to give these children a chance to not only experience the creative process WITH someone else, but also to know the joy and pride that comes from seeing your work hanging in a show.” I'm extremely proud to have had the chance to collaborate and learn from these great group of kids.

Here are a few of our finished pieces:

Ghost, collaboration with Allen, mixed media on canvas, 18" x 18"

Heroes & Villains, collaboration with Allen, acrylic on canvas, 18" x 18"
