These are my "doodles". They must meet certain criteria or else I reject them and re-start. I doodle when I'm bored or very sad. I have Aspergers Syndrome. I like routines and can find patterns in things. I have experienced panic attacks for many years - on public transport and when I'm overwhelmed or scared. I do not cope well with sudden changes to plans or routines, and my senses are sometimes hypersensitive and I get huge headaches. I like learning languages and can speak Japanese and some Chinese. I lived in Japan for a year as part of my degree, and also spent a summer in China teaching English and translating for the other volunteers. I also know some Spanish and am trying to learn Malay. I want to learn Tibetan too. I'm trying learn how to live with my emotions without the aid of medication, and it's proving quite a challenge. The watermark on my doodles says "Smile" in Japanese, and is pronounced "e-gao" I find computers more logical and easier to understand than people. Doodles on canvas coming soon...

You are an amazing and compelling creative talent. Wow!



So beautiful, should be used as fabric designs and more!

I find myself grasping for mathematical terms...

The studies that you create are interesting to meditate on because each design has a defined centre point to it. These doodle drawings are very harmonious compositions.



It may be no real comfort for you, but I believe that one day in the future our present society will be condemned for failing to appreciate, or even to understand, that people with talents such as yours are under-appreciated, under-used and generally rejected. Talents that are only hinted at in the quality and intricacy of the illustrations that you produce.

I consider it a privilege to know you, Em, and I feel sure that you are on your way to breaking through the barriers that seem to block you out of society.
