DRAWINGS

Because of my prestigious background*, recently I was presented with a box of over 300 original artworks from my childhood. I was raised an only child and I was prolific. I experimented with so many subjects and styles, dabbled in so many media. I decided not to hang onto all these priceless artworks but I decided to document them for posterity nevertheless. 

*A long line of hoarders.

Self portraits were my jam.

Fact: I wanted to be a botanist. (This is a real fact.)

I was good at painting mountains.

I wasn't always a realist.

Oh hey MoMA called they want their geometric abstraction back.

But by the time I was ten, I moved strictly to socio political art.

And lastly, my favourite. And the only one I'm framing.

Guess I was in a really dark place in life when I made it.
