I grew up in a loving family, free to run around, develop my character and pursue my interests. Yet I perceive childhood as a fundamentally tough time. Stolen toys, force-fed milk soup at the nursery, fear of darkness, violent kids in the playground, scary toys, wet panties, bruised knees. And memories that don’t seem to cease haunting  me. / This series of paintings got developed at Camberwell College of Arts in London.
