Updated with D’s comments
This post is for squag.com, who wanted art by artists with autism.
D is my 8 year old daughter with autism. She uses drawing and colouring as her relaxation tool. If there is a day when she refuses to draw/colour, you know there is something very very wrong.
Some of D’s drawings:
This is me, her Mumma:
(additional comment by D: I thought to draw that so you (J) can be happy and proud and think I’m the nicest girl in the world)
A freehand Dragon:
(additional comment by D: this is Spyro giving me (D) a ride and trying to burn evil boys)
(additional comment by D: this is me (D) flying over the hill with angel wings)
D as a butterfly:
(additional comment by D: this is D the butterfly who comes in my dreams. Do you know why I dream about her? Because she can fly and she rescues me from the DVDs – one of her anxieties)
D and her brother:
(additional comment by D: this is me and T, it’s about when T and me become adults)
Animals and their babies:
Her favourite toy, Bunny:
(additional comment by D: that’s Bunny and there’s a drawing of her. Bunny is my favourite toy and in my dream, she comes to life)
D says she likes drawing because:
I like drawing because it’s fun. I learnt to draw when I was little.
I hope you enjoy looking at these lovely, positive pictures as much as we do!
Thanks for looking,
Jeannette aka @AutismMumma 😘
