This series is inspired by my internship experience. Working with adults with developmental disabilities in a studio setting is unique. Spending time at the Art Connection Studio with the artists who work there has been a fantastic experience that I will always be grateful for. In part because they all inspired me to create this series with my younger sister who has developmental disabilities as well. Since she is non-verbal, it is difficult for her to express her feelings through words. It is much easier for her to express herself through her actions. In these works, she does this. We explore our relationship. Painting together has been a way for us to share our relationship with all of you without words. It is our non-verbal communication.
