“My most prized possession is a plaster handprint that I made when I was 5 years old. It doesn’t seem like much, but it’s one of the only things I kept from my early childhood. It happens to be a piece of art that most every kid makes when they are in kindergarten. Now, over 40 years later, I am still in a creative career and find it interesting that this handprint came to symbolize more than just the size of my palm and fingers at that time.”
