Mother/Son Art Brings Awareness to Autism

Two Can Art is a collaborative collection of images between Patti Gay and her son Noah who is autistic. Noah paints all of the beautiful textures that Patti then creates images from. Images are now being licensed for products by companies.

Ben Lomond, CA, March 12, 2015 --( Patti Gay and her son Noah have teamed together to create a collection of images called Two Can Art. Noah, who is autistic, creates all of the painted textures that Patti then puts into images.

For Noah, painting is a whole sensory activity. It has been part of his program since he was very young. He uses sponges, brushes, rollers, fingers, and even bubbles to create textures. “I have always thought his textures were beautiful,” says Patti. “I think this is the best work to date, and I have him to thank for the inspiration and contribution. He has given me an incredible gift.”

The images that Patti and Noah create together are being licensed for products now.There are tumblers with Tervis, dinnerware and napkins with Paper Products Designs,pillows with C & F Enterprises, paper plates, napkins and cards with Design Design, garden flags with Carson Home, wall décor with Gango Editions and Needlepoint designs with Art Needlepoint. “ It’s so exciting to see the work that we have done together out there in the world. I am thrilled that it has been so well received.”

Funds from the Two Can Art collection are being put back for Noah’s future. Tervis, Paper Product Designs and Gango Editions are also giving a portion of sales to autism related organizations.

The Collection is full of nature images with beautiful colors. Patti draws inspiration from the textures as well as the natural setting of the Santa Cruz mountains where she and Noah live and work. Patti says "I hope that exposing more people to Noah’s art will show that everyone has something beautiful to give the world."
