About Victor Earth

This is our kid, Victor Earth. (He chose his own name, but that's a story for another day). In case you haven't noticed already, he has Autism. And he's an artist. And an aspiring magician or architect or ninja. His brilliance, his humor, and his perseverance are undeniable. We think he's pretty darn cool, and we're doing our best to both help him find his right place in the world and to make sure he knows how much he is loved.

It wasn't always this way. We tried to fit him into a typical mold for a handful of years. Public school, ABA therapy, IEPs, private school. Along the way, this child has shaken up our world in all the best ways, always letting us know when it's just not working for him. 

It was when we started to truly listen that our lives got infinitely better. And in removing all the things that were taking a toll on the daily quality of life, his art has blossomed. 

(Seriously, the fact that he's been able to rally his divorced parents around him in this way is a true testament to the kind of impact he has on those around him.) 

We don't know what Victor Earth will be when he grows up. We don't know if he will have a job, or work for himself, or live independently. What we do know is that we want him to be able to have whatever experiences of life that he wants to experience. And as his parents, we are committed to creating the support structures for this to occur.

Right now, the kid wants to make and share art. And we're supporting the hell out of it - that's why we're here. We hope you will too.

A few words from the artist:

Hi, my name is Victor. I am 10 years old. For some reason, I like art.
My favorite kind of art to make is paper cut-outs. The best one I ever made was a copy of a video game level.
I like to paint like Bob Ross because his paintings are neat and it also seems fun to paint the way he does. My favorite thing about it is mixing the colors.
I like to make art because art is cool, and fun to make. I like making art because it makes me feel good, and I think about being where the art is located. When I’m making a painting, I imagine I am where I’m painting. When I imagine myself in the mountains or near water and trees, I feel good. It makes me feel like I’m in the world. I want to share it with other people so they can have this feeling too.
