My name is Remrov. I am a self-taught fine artist born in the Netherlands who immigrated to Montreal, Canada in 2013.
I’ve always made all kinds of artwork since I was little, and now I specialize in photorealistic pencil and pen drawings of people, animals, trees, houses, and everything else I find interesting.
I have autism, and due to this I see the world in tiny little details. My artwork tends to be this way too, very precise and detailed. The whole world is incredibly chaotic for me, and I find it difficult to focus on so many different things at once. When I’m working on a drawing, I only have to focus on that -- on the details of my drawing. That’s what I love so much about working on my art.
Besides an autistic artist, I’m also an autism consultant. When I was younger I didn’t understand anything of the world around me, nor did I understand language. I got myself through every day by studying, memorizing and copying other people’s behaviour, language and customs. Even though at first everything I said and did was all just copied, I slowly made it my own until I was confident enough to try to find my own words and language inside myself. I went from being a little frightened person who didn’t understand any language to a person who is confident and who has quite an amount of self knowledge -- and who knows what she needs to manage her life. Now I use all my knowledge to help other people with autism and their families and to give presentations about my experiences.
