Artist Statement:

    2004 Statement: Skipper’s Book is a tribute to my older sister illustrating my memories of her early years when we lived in Germany after the war. There are words, but no structured narrative as I wanted to convey the way I, as a baby and small toddler with little command of language, experienced this older, wonderful person, who was often lonely, lost and yet full of childish wonder. Each page represents emotions and events occurring during 6 months in 1950, starting with June. It can be viewed as sequential pages on a computer monitor or printed as a small folder accordion-style booklet
