Maie Hotard, a teen in Atlanta, Georgia. She is autistic and uses limited words to communicate. She finds joy and love in gorgeous rich colors. She took a class on pour painting that allowed her to find a way to express the colors she feels for people and things. Her purpose: “My purpose is to lovingly send my positive vibrant color vibrations to all people. We all need love. My art is real expressions of love. Kindness is laudable love. I find kindness pleasing to paint. Art is my feelings on canvas. My art, rather than giving the picture, gives the feelings I feel. And I see good in all of the universe.
