Child’s play
5-8 year olds

This picture shows that then and now are quite similar times. My picture is special to me because it’s of my dad as a child playing with a toy truck while sitting on a Sebel chair that his grandfather invented. Today we still sit on Sebel chairs in school and it’s very cool to sit on a chair with your surname on it! My great-grandfather Harry Sebel was creative and imaginative and I like to think that I have got that from him. I’m always inventing new things and spend most of my time sketching and drawing.
