Hayden McLean

Hayden McLean is an artist passionate and prolific with a strong daily practice. He draws the world around him and within him. Hayden uses drawing to communicate his needs and emotions. He is also a woodworker and prolific shoelace/cord maker. Hayden lives with autism.


Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a problem with processing in the brain stemming from faulty connections between nerve cells. It can have behavioral consequences. Hayden's creative output is strongly linked to his sensory needs. It is known that autistic people tend to protect themselves from sensory overload by stimming (repetitive movements).
