Mary Sunarho

Mary comes from a graphic and UI design background. She started her career in the year 2000 in the graphics, web and usability experience industry, designing branding, websites, user interface for various mobile apps as well as print materials. After the birth of her third son and upon receiving the autism diagnose for her second son Jonathan, life suddenly brought on an unfamiliar, steep and rocky path for her. The journey of being a mother to a special needs child taught her many valuable lessons.

She uses art as a means of building meaningful connection with her son. In that process she discovers his talents and passion for art. Together they focus on their strength and find the possibilities of living a life of purpose in the midst of their challenges.

Jonathan Sunarho

Jon is a happy 11 year old boy. When he was 3.5 years old, he was diagnosed with classic autism. Like many other individuals with autism, he has many struggles in sensory, language, communication, fine motor skills and social areas.

Since very young age, Jon has always shown his love for music, art and technology. Seeing his interest and talents, Mary decided to focus on his strength to help him to build a foundation of confidence and self values.

Jon's unique drawing style is much loved by children and adults alike. His works can be found on various Harvest Collection products. Lately he has been working on children's books and collaborated with another Sydney artist to create a poster for the SPHERE's health conference.
