Michele Marie Newman is an autistic savant artist and writer from the USA who has been painting and drawing for most of her life. She is currently also the Executive Director at Autism in Community. Michele had been misdiagnosed when she was young and was consequently incorrectly treated for almost 37 years until she discovered that instead of being bipolar she is a hi-functioning autistic on the spectrum with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) and Savant Syndrome. Michele was included in the International Savant Registry in August 2010. Michele considers herself a Christian child of God. Visit her wonderful art gallery here.
