I have a gorgeous daughter with severe autism. I often get told how calm and cheerful I seem considering the difficulties we face as a family.
I’ve only just realised that one of my coping strategies is to daydream. To dream of worlds that are full of magical creatures and the drama of nature; places where we play and dream and dance.
These drawings are doodle of my daydreams. The angles, proportions and narratives are all happily higgledy-piggledy, daft and dreamy; adding just the right amount of magic to what could be a difficult life.
So these doodles are for all of us who find ‘real life’ a little difficult. This is for you my love, my beautiful love.
