"Lost Childhood" is my visual interpretation of dealing with the loss of childhood innocence, abuse and even death that affects so many children in the United States and world wide. This stems from the current events of the day which are filled with an endless data pertaining to violence against children. This series uses the beauty and innocence of what it means to be a child such as bright colors and patterns, in combination with bones, broken and tattered toys and dilapidated antique dolls. The effect creates art that reflects life in a manner that is hauntingly beautiful but humanly flawed.
