I am Melanie Jai, welcome to my life. This artwork is part of my mammoth artistic journey to understand the inner world of my son with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. This has been my therapy, my saviour at times. It has also been an invaluable tool for my children and I to communicate and connect.
This particular painting “According To You” was borne out of a statement my son made:
“Mummy, when you were little did you feel different like me?”
