In 2008, I created the letters of the alphabet for an exhibition on Martha’s Vineyard. I use graphite pencil and watercolors and paint in a sensitive whimsical style. With the exception of the California Quail I used birds, animals and plants that exist in my environment and have special meaning for me.
It seemed natural to turn the images into a book. After a few iterations, the help of a great book designer A. Michelle, and a successful KickStarter project the book came out as “A Fine Book of Letters.” The book has been very successful and is now available here and on Amazon.com.
I am offering small limited edition prints of the letters. In some cases I have had requests for new versions of the letters (a masculine version and a feminine version) and those are available here as well. The letters can also be ordered with personalization, for example: a child’s name and date of birth can be added at the bottom.
This exhibition is about the textile workers and mills that are such an enduring part of our history and landscape.
The artwork itself explores the mills and workers as well as the off-job recreation, and even brings to light the flowers apparently grown in the windows to soften the harsh realities of the factory floor.
It is an art of the workers and immigrants and a part of the American Dream that had both rough and beautiful moments.
