Nicole: Determined, Passionate, Exuberant Young Lady with #Autism

I am Nicole Ayala, a talented self-taught artist who has Autism and Social Anxiety disorder. I was born in Cape Coral, Fl. In 1995 where I currently live with my family.

Cupcakes – Self-portrait

Communication has always been a challenge for me. At the age of 12 I began to produce colorful whimsical characters, full of intense emotions. These drawings have become a pathway for me to express myself.

    Hi Nicole,

    I love how multi-dimensional the work is! For example, only after focusing on the cupcakes for a few minutes did I see the profile. The colors are incredibly vibrant and I can really FEEL the emotion in the work. Thank you for sharing this with us.
