Artist's Statement:

Among Children is a series of recent paintings, prints and drawings based on observations from more than 30 years of working – and a lifetime of living – among children. As a teacher, I spend a lot of time among children, and I often find myself thinking there is so much we ‘grown-ups’ can learn from them. Children go about their days, always in the moment, thinking neither ahead nor behind. So often they are experiencing things for the first time. Everything is new. With these works I strive to capture those ‘in-the-moment’ moments.
