Jesse Lambert was a student of mine when he was in elementary school. He was a boarding student and spent some vacation time with our family too. Much of his work has to do with his childhood in N.H. ...or at least it does to me. The hammer and nails and wood, the tree forts, the tire swing, the birds and plants are all part of his childhood existence. Now he lives with his wife and son in Queens N.Y. But still there is his childhood in the woods.
