Inspired by children's book illustration of the early twentieth century, I attempted some pieces where simple, elegant line predominates. This drawing is of a good friend, Tara Martin, with my daughter Inga in Inga’s bedroom.

I added some beloved historical children’s book illustrations in frames on the walls. Just to the left of Tara’s head you can see Beauty leaning over a suffering Beast.
