“Growing up in the small town of Afton Minnesota, I read science fiction and fantasy comic books and waded in the swamps of the St. Croix River Valley catching frogs, turtles and minnows for my menagerie in back of our old house.  From the age of 5, I liked to draw and write stories. The first great book I read when I was 7 was John Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress that was one of the few books in our house. It was a style of literature I found fascinating. I studiously taught myself to paint over the years and only really discovered literature in depth when I took a college English course in my high school and we were presented with Shakespeare in some depth tanks to a teacher, Mrs. Jolly. After that I read the entire output of Twain, Dreiser and many other authors. In College I was presented with St. Anselm’s ontological argument and I became so fascinated by pure reasoning that my first love became philosophy. Coming to New York and continuing my education at Hunter College, I took a course on Milton. It was then that ART, PHILOSOPHY AND MILTON coalesced into one of the main themes of my intellectual and artistic output.

 

“I hope that you will share my enthusiasm for producing what I believe will be one of the greatest printed and hand embellished books of all time, since that is what I intend to produce with the help of my friends and enthusiastic supporters!”
