Arts Review  December 27, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Just where and when I first became aware of wood grain is lost to me, but I like to think it happened at my grandparents' home back when I'd sprawl on the floor with a coloring book and while away the hours filling in outlined shapes with the brightest, lushest colors in my box of crayons.
