“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child” – Pablo Picasso
The imagination of children truly inspires me. Absorbed in their own fantasy worlds, nothing is impossible. In an effort to capture and hold on to these moments in my own children, I started to create what I call ‘conceptual portraits’ With a background of retouching in advertising agencies, I use both photography and photoshop (and a sprinkling of imagination!) to create the worlds our children so effortlessly dream up. Suspending disbelief, so we too can get lost in the worlds of our children.
