This is Mine

“I grew up through the boom time of the 1950s. After long years of the deprivation of first a global depression and then world war, prosperity and stability defined paradise. Material acquisition meant life was good, finally! Or, so we all thought. These images explore my experience of that time as a child. And yes, through the murky lens of memory and a life lived for decades beyond. Images shift, collide and morph. As a kid, I would keep myself out of trouble by drawing for hours. I would tell myself these fantastic stories while drawing all the action. Things would blow up! There would be monsters and aliens; all kinds of excitement. Hmmm…some sixty years later not much has changed. I am still using drawing to tell stories. I invite you to step in, explore, and tell yourself your own story. Have fun!”
