Created in Provence while in residence at Mas des Graviers I was inspired by the play of my two young sons, their freedom to take any find and turn it into whatever their imagination needed was a great lesson of creativity for me. My ‘Young Boy Playing’ with a shield, is made of found branches from the vineyard and bits n pieces from the studio yard to assist in my own play in creating this work.  It is the Joy of Life.
