Hello, my name is Yvonne Wan.
I am the creator of Focus comic which is a humanitarian project that champions autistic and special needs kids through comic art. My mission is to maintain dignity for autistic individuals by removing the stigma and champion special needs kids through the arts. I run a free art camp for special needs kids. I am proud to champion kids with autism and special needs by promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.
I have a masters in social cultural anthropology and film ethnography. I am also an award winning artist. My portrait painting of the 46th President of the U.S is displayed at the White House. I share my talent with autistic and special needs kids to empower them to fulfill their creative potential and focus on what they can do instead of what they cant do.
I have won various awards including the ‘Inspiration in Life Award’ hosted by the Discovery Channel and Media Week as well as a University Project Award based upon my studies of Ageing. In 2020 I won the Pentel of America Creator Award. I have also been awarded The People’s Choice award for Focus comics through the Goodyear Arts and culture commission.
Please reach out to me should you wish to learn more about my services, commission some art and support my inclusion project supporting kids with autism and special needs.
