Wiley is a talented 37 years old artist who has autism spectrum disorder. Wiley had a dream that painting would be his profession and the dream has come true! He is only able to continue his dream through the support of his family and those who buy his art. Wiley has no formal art training. He started painting as a hobby approximately 2009. He enjoys painting acrylic on canvas, abstract style, but also likes painting on recycled materials and small wooden crafts. He has participated multiple times in the “Brushes with Life” art exhibition at NC Neurosciences Hospital in Chapel Hill and exhibited at a number of art galleries and events in the Raleigh, NC area over the years. Wiley is proud to announce that the Raleigh Arts Commission has approved the purchase of one of his paintings for the permanent collection of the city.Instagram Link
