Through the Looking Glass: A mother's journey to understand the inner world of her autistic son

Breadcrumbs

Gladstone artist Melanie Jai’s whimsical paintings inspire understanding, compassion and acceptance for those affected by mental health issues.

Melanie’s highly stylised portraiture helps her reach the fairytale land of villains and heroes that her son so often retreats to.

The textural works engage viewers with words of honesty and wisdom to shine light on the strong emotions, chaos and confusion associated with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
