  1. “being true of yourself”
    oh I love that simple brilliance,
    such deep sweet water wisdom:)
    thank you for giving her a place
    in your art
    …her voice grew wings
    because of you
    and now we all get to hear the song!
    i love that about you,

  2. Mary says:

    It is so amazing at what comes out of young hearts, not jaded, defeated, or constrained by the living of life yet!

    Here’s to fresh eyes and heart!


  3. Julia says:

    also, all the books i bought from you have gone out into the world and are being enjoyed!

  6. It’s wonderful what children come up with, how they say it as they see it. When I’m not painting I work in care and get lots of honest opinions! Your drawing sits beautifully with the conversation x
