For The Child Within

I consider this work a collaboration through time of my adult artist self and my child artist self. As a child artist I was obsessed with the inner life of cats and horses and their friendships with people.  In children’s art I find uncensored psychological and symbolic meaning. As an adult artist the uninhibited, primitive quality of early age drawings intrigues me for its freedom of color, line and content. I have tried to remain faithful to the loose expressiveness of these quirky characters and to their unedited spirit. I have collaged in the actual drawings from my childhood for some of  this work to make new compositions and stories. For more art that children love look at the Thunder and Lighting Paintings or Etchings, and also, see my cigar box series, at
