Artist Statement

I often think of the famous quote by Dr. Hans Asperger: “For success in science or art, a dash of autism is essential.” I have never considered myself to be mentally ill, but a doctor recently diagnosed me as suffering from schizophrenia. I think the doctor is mistaken in her diagnosis, but then again, it is said to be a recognized symptom of severe mental illness that the person who is crazy absolutely does not think that they are crazy . . .
