Review

The correspondence provides an intimate view of the artists' social world. -- American Craft, Apr-May 2006

The witty warm missives in MORE THAN WORDS make one wonder if personal correspondence is in danger of dying today. -- Smithsonian Magazine, October, 2005

These doodles show artists--some well-known, others more obscure--being relaxed and goofy...a testament to family ties and friendship. -- Newsday, Dec 11, 2005

Today, when illustrating a communication...is adding smiley-face emoticons to instant messages...this arrives like a letter from long-lost friend. -- Wall Street Journal, 1/21/2006
