My name is Melissa Marcus. I am 26 years old, and I am on the autistic spectrum. I have always loved many types of art from painting to needlepoint and photography. Art helps me feel calm and organized. Although I love creating art, my greatest joy is sharing my artwork with others. I also enjoy volunteering at Northside Hospital. I am excited to showcase my artwork for the first time and to be involved with Synergies Work.
