"Draw, draw, draw -- it's what I do. I am interested in identity and how the initial, intimate societies of family influence us as individuals. I see and think of connections between idea and form constantly... shape represents content, content is expressed through shape."
Eric examines these stories by drawing trees as a habitat representing the family -- a new view of the Family Tree. Some of the pieces in this series are experienced; some are observed; some are imagined.

A painter and book-artist, Ingrid uses transparent layers of acrylics and colored pencil to explore issues that are both deeply personal and Universal.
"With a background in fine art and archetypal art therapy, I find the intersection of personal story, mythology and psychology to be a rich and fascinating place. Using metaphor, symbolism, and myth in my work brings new - and often unexpected - layers of meaning to my paintings and illustrated stories."
