One of my digital art pieces, “Escape”, will be displayed as part of the Art of Autism exhibits in April and May. “Escape” is based on my poem, “Letter to My Father”, and is a digital art print on photo paper. “Letter to My Father” appears in the 2012 edition of The Art of Autism, which is now available for purchase from its website.
“Escape”, along with art from several other artists on the autism spectrum with work in The Art of Autism, will be featured in both the April and May shows.
The first Art of Autism exhibit will be at the Bohemia Coffee House in Ojai, CA during April (click on the image below to view larger).
The May exhibit will be at Curious Cup in Carpinteria, CA. Click here for more information.
The Art of Autism Exhibit will run from November 4 – 6 at the Good Purpose Gallery in Lee, Massachusetts. Please click on the graphic below for more information and a full flyer about the event.
A short film for my poem, “Letter to My Father“, will be shown during the exhibit.

Hello WWA Readers!
