"At Play"

"I had a very happy childhood growing up with my three siblings in Toronto, Canada. We lived across the street from a large park whose eastern edge gave way to an expansive ravine with an abandoned quarry and brickworks. We would often escape together early in the morning to explore this park and ravine only to return in time for dinner. 

I am especially drawn to children playing and can watch their antics for hours. Children seem to have endless amounts of energy, optimism and creativity. To me play is invigorating and much more than exercise; it's exploring, discovering, make believing and even risk taking. Whether it's playing with a sibling, school friend, favorite pet or in a backyard tree it's time spent discovering the world around us. The rewards of play with one another cannot be replaced by a video game or zoom call.

I certainly hope in looking at these paintings you too can connect with your inner child and find joy."
