What an HONOR!

I am deeply honored to have my artwork installed at the New Center for Child Development location for Children's Wisconsin.

I want to express my gratitude to the Miller family for sponsoring the wall that displays three of my print pieces: "The Dragonfly Tango," "The Aquarium," and "The Resting Peacock." They also included a bio picture of me, which I find both funny and appropriate given my use of puzzles in my artwork. Additionally, they added a quote I often say: "It's not what you can't do that makes you different. It's what you can do that makes a difference."

The center is truly unique, offering everything needed for therapy, counseling, group conferences, support groups, and more. It’s incredible to see how far things have come since I began my therapy for autism in 2000.

I am also thrilled to have two of my original pieces displayed in the conference rooms.
The Willow Tree Collection. Prints available in July.

Thank you again, Children's Wisconsin. I look forward to contributing in any way I can to raise awareness about the special talents and incredible people within the neurodiverse community.
