Installment # 6: Katie Warner

Here is a poem I made for those who love Art and who are Autistic. Also this has been made for those who have relations with Autism. Hope you enjoy it. —Katie Warner

I try not to cry with pride tonight
Seeing in front of me such a sight
A beautiful child drawing in their room
Having no worries, no sorrow or gloom
This child is not at all like the rest
They seem to know what they can do best

They look up for a second with a smile
Making my time there worth the while
A young child with inspiration inside
A child who in their life has just tried
To fit in without a care in the world
With every boy and every girl

I see a young child with courage and strength
Who has fought so long at such a length
Against their fears, their stresses, their strains
Just to feel whole and happy again
This child has Autism and passion for Art
But do not forget we will never part

You will always be here within my heart!


Just in time for Halloween, here is one of our "spookier" submissions we have received: "I am 38 and diagnosed Asperger's Syndrome. Here is a painting I did. Hope you guys like it!"
Artist known as Black Plastick




From one extremely artist, BJ Lane: "'In a wink of an eye' is one of my paintings depicting different stages of life with my autistic daughter. The colors range across the spectrum, evolving from pink-the innocence of birth, gradually moving through orange, red, purple, blue, and finally green-the maturing adult. The overalls symbolize restrictions placed upon her in her youth. From left to right, the view sees a slow, progressive movement towards less restriction, (only one clip buckled in the center portrait) purpose (overalls used as ranch clothing in her adult years) and finally, only one button (symbolizing ability and knowledge) in her future years. . The center portrait depicts the highschool years--the struggles show in her expression. The portraits on the left show her looking like a typical child, yet the eery blank look and lack of smile, shows the oddness of this disorder. The portraits on the right are a projection of what I hope her future may be...with more love, tranquility and contentment in her life. Now 19 years old, my daughter has been living in a group home for 3 years. She struggles with daily joy. Our children pass through life in a wink of an eye. As a mom, I hold onto the hope for a better future."
