Parenthood Experiments

There was a slow progression from the anticipation of fatherhood, to being inspired by my children, to appropriating “kid” marks, to ultimately true collaborations. This page shows work that was inspired by being a father and my children. I used the symbols of banners, birds, tools and flowers (growing in nurtured gardens).
