My daughter, my muse, my source of creative inspiration. Small, yet mighty, she is a commanding, colorful and emotional spirit... not to be reckoned with. She embodies innocence, drama, intelligence, complexity and perpetual movement. She has ADHD. In this body of work, Multiplicity, I have attempted to capture the essence of her unlimited energy, psyche, and her soul.

Her ADHD mind is an endless racetrack; a provocateur of impulsivity; a super power of creativity and imagination; a dysregulation of emotions. Patience is not her strong suit - movement is her preferred companion. She exudes energy, expression and explosive emotion. Her movements are super fast and dramatic. She acts before thinking with no inhibition, no regard for consequence. There is beauty in her mental disorder. Beauty found in the flux of uncontrolled movements and the drama of exaggerated emotions.

As a mom of an ADHD child, it is exhausting; a never ending dialog and wake of disorder and destruction - an envy of unlimited energy and virtuosity. As an artist, my focus is on harnessing her racing brain, her constant changing thoughts and her fleeting emotions and impulsivity. To take that energy and to visualize her transient thoughts and emotions that capture those fleeting moments... because her brain will forget them in just a minute's time.

Multiplicity is an in-depth insight into the complexity of the neurodiverse mind. The beauty of impulsivity and hyperactivity. The fluidity, color and emotion of ADHD as it appears and disappears in the blink of an eye. Each image is intended to capture your attention, engage your thoughts and help you contemplate the flow of movement and the intricacy of multiple emotions.
