Here we are . . .

How did we get here?

Maria Kalman has a unique and beautiful way of telling a story.  She is a visual columnist, illustrator, artist and I am so grateful to have discovered her.

From her website:

Maira Kalman was born in Tel Aviv and moved to New York with her family at the age of four. She has worked as a designer, author, illustrator and artist for more than thirty years without formal training. Her work is a narrative journal of her life and all its absurdities. She has written and illustrated twelve children’s books including Ooh-la-la- Max in Love, What Pete Ate, and Swami on Rye . She often illustrates for The New Yorker magazine, and is well known for her collaboration with Rick Meyerowitz on the NewYorkistan cover in 2001. Recent projects include The Elements of Style (illustrated), and a monthly on-line column entitled Principles of Uncertainty for The New York Times.

She has had three exhibitions at the Julie Saul Gallery since 2003.

She lives in New York and walks a lot.
