Patti Gay and her son Noah teamed up to create a collection of images called Two Can Art. Noah, who is autistic, creates all of the painted textures, which then serve as a palette for Patti as she assembles them into images.
For Noah, painting is a whole sensory activity. It has been part of his program since he was very young. He uses sponges, brushes, rollers, fingers, and even bubbles to create textures. “I have always thought his textures were beautiful,” says Patti. “It seems such a natural development that something we both love doing would merge.” Funds from the Two Can Art collection are being put back for Noah’s future.
