The complexity of childhood pulls me in for another look. For several years I has been investigating the idea of self as it is constructed through language and communication, in early childhood. This study continues. My newest work focuses on behaviors and influences, coming from childhood experiences. Here there is an exploration into the power of daily costumes, customs, and environments, of which we are all persuaded to participate.

Bearing in mind childhood roles within society, gender, parental and cultural expectations are some of the boundaries measured here. While capturing anything from innocent childlike reverie and established idealized states of childhood to the humorous, mysterious, precocious and even dangerous side of the subject, the ideas presented are less than factual record but more than fictional narratives.
