"More than anything, I was accorded complete centrality as a young boy- but as a young kind of feminine boy that was given complete and uncensored expression. Whatever kind of predilection or whim I would exhibit there was just simply no raised eyebrow. I think that might have set the stage...I don’t know if there were specific memories that, as I look back on them, might have indicated that I would become an artist. But that precondition of allowing me as a young boy to express a fey side was given full rein and never ever commented on."
