Here you can find over 775 images by people living with autism. Wow. These images project the unique vision of artists on the spectrum, in some cases  an important tool to express their inner feelings and thoughts.

Find images by searching or browsing catagoies listed to your left. Have fun shopping, and supporting artists with autism.

Images are available as gallery quality framed original pieces (limited availability), as 3x5 or 5x7 notecards, individually or in sets, and as 8x10 prints on photo paper, or 5x7 prints in an 8x10 off-white mat. Each card or reprint includes an artist bio or statement on the back and the notecards are blank inside for your own message. Call if you would like a personal message imprinted on the inside (only available for orders of sets of 20 or more). Visit our Artist Challenge page for larger, made to your specification designs just for your company.

Below are videos produced by "Project My Voice", a group of University of Oregon students working to assist a local non-profit in raising awareness about Autism in our community, and to shine a light on some very talented people. This was part of the civic journalism movement, made possible by a successful grant by Alina Padilla-Miller.

Stephen Peeler, Self Portrait

Stephen Peeler: I started doing art at the age of 11, although I wasn't aware of the different principles associated with it. I started out by drawing, then, as the years rolled by, I got into charcoal works, then paint. To me, art is a highly anticipated form of expression based on the formative and creative imagination, expressing the inner feelings and thoughts of one individual. I aim to continually develop a taste and increase my interest in the different forms of art.

Stephen is a recipient of a KindTree cash grant to help him create his art.
