World Autism Awareness Day- An Invitation

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. In celebration here is an invitation to my daughter Gen's "Syndromation" Show at the A Wilfred Johns Gallery in the MacLaurin Building at the University of Victoria. We'd love to have you join us at the Artist'sReception on Saturday, April 11 from 4 pm- 6 pm. Please RSVP at if you can come!
Gen was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome when she was four years old. Gen invented the word Syndromation to describe her art exhibition because she celebrates the Syndrome as a gift that affects her creativity in wonderful ways. Gen is fascinated by Japanese Manga and has made adaptations to make it her own. "Chibi" means little and cute and expresses the innocence she conveys in her stories. Gen hopes you will enjoy the collection of her work from her preschool years to the present and that it will inspire you to learn more about the ways that people with autism view the world.
