Childhood is when we form so many of our values and ideas. I have explored lots of childish forms in my sculptures and this is another in the series. I often use female forms as they are more fun to make with long hair and dresses.
We have all been told to put our best foot forward and the first time we hear it we all ask which one? I love the concentration conveyed in this piece. The step is one of deliberation yet the red shoes convey a sense of joy!
As part of untold stories I feel this is one of those aspects which relates the human choices and decisions we make and how we choose to fit into our world.
