🎨 ICYMI……April is Autism Awareness Month, and it’s a cause close to my heart. As a mother to an amazing son named Jack, who happens to be an adult with autism, I’m excited to share a heartfelt initiative with you all.

🤝 I’m teaming up with Fred Holmes, owner of Frederick Holmes & Company Gallery in Seattle, to support Autism Awareness Month. For over a decade, the gallery has represented my work in Seattle.

🖼️ From now until April 30, 2024, 30% of the proceeds from any sale of my paintings or prints will be donated to the Seattle Children’s Autism Center. This contribution directly aids individuals and families affected by autism.

💙 Huge thanks to Fred Holmes for his generous support! Not only is he a visionary in the art world, but also a community leader with a heart of gold.

🌟 And a special shoutout to all the readers of my Studio News who showed their support for our autism initiative. Together, we can make a difference! .

🖼️ ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
Abstract by Jack. Metallic, waxy crayons on paper. 7x8”
Portrait: 
‘Portrait of My Son Jack and His Autism’
Photo and pigmented beeswax combines on Kozo and wood panel. 40x40x2”

‘Portrait of My Son Jack and His Autism’ is a story told from a distant, isolated, and awkward place. This disorder has defined his place in the world, excluding him from society and denying him the beauty and subtleties of life. Armed with only a few utterances, Jack wanders through the world overwhelmed by words and sounds that he cannot understand and by people he will never know. Jack responds to the world viscerally, indifferent and at times, with small sparks of recognition.

I portray my son as he blocks out the sound in an ordinary situation, which, for him, is a storm that he cannot navigate. Despite the difficulties Jack faces, there exists a profound strength that shines through. Knowing Jack becomes a celebration of the resilience, love, and hope that define us all. 

Your support means the world to us and to families like ours. 🙏💙

🌷Spring Studio Clean-up🌷…. Saying goodbye for now to paintings that didn’t quite make the cut. Today they are on their way to my basement storage. These heavy-duty panels will need to be scraped down, renewed, and recycled for future work. I love the long meditative process of renewing my painting panels. It’s all part of the creative journey.

#TBT. “That Night in August”
When I create a figurative or abstract series, I write a narrative to further develop the relationships among the paintings. 
👀Read below about this series of 12 paintings titled “Why They Left Sumners Place”:

✏️ After the sudden and unexpected incident, a few residents of Sumners Place began to leave.
It was obvious to everyone that life in this small town could not continue in this way. Some
residents had to stay and some had to go. This series of paintings tells the story of what
happened and why they left.

💙April is Autism Awareness Month💙 .....a time close to my heart for reasons you might not be familiar with. I am the mother of an incredible son named Jack, who happens to be an adult with autism.
In honor of Autism Awareness Month, I am thrilled to share that I am partnering with the wonderful Fred Holmes, owner of Frederick Holmes & Company Gallery in Seattle, WA. @frederickholmesandcompany

📌📌From today until April 30, 2024, we will be donating 30% of the proceeds from the sale of any of my paintings or prints to Seattle Children’s Autism Center to support their vital work.

With heartfelt gratitude, I extend my biggest thank you to Fred Holmes for his generous support for Autism Awareness Month. Not only is Fred a visionary in the art world, but he's also a community leader with a heart of gold.
