This new body of work seeks to create a platform for social awareness while opening up a discussion about available support systems and funding for both children and adults diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The oil portraits in this series follow five families who are currently caring for a child or adult with ASD ranging in ages 9-46. The focus of this new body of work is to provide a public connection and “face” to bring awareness to the many challenges as well as successes in caring for both children and adults with autism.
**A special thanks to the five families, children and adults who are currently participating in this project: Deana Becker (August), Kaarin Elizabeth (Buhdda, Elizabeth, Wolfgang), Brian Galloway (Eddie), Ruby and Scot Gamble (Atticus, Keir), Alysia Abbott, Annabel and Jeff Howe (Finn).
