Artist statement:

“Our young son, Simon, is finding the journey from childhood through to young adulthood difficult and painful. We have tried many strategies to help him. So far the best therapy and help has been the joyous company of our new dog Bam Bam, who we found at the local RSPCA. They have become good mates and look out for each other. The love between a boy and his dog is unspoken, unconditional, age-old and universal.”
