Deb & Bill met in the late seventies and were together for almost thirty years, sharing a passion for travel, books, and gambling. One of their greatest passions was family – leisure time was spent with Bill’s parents or Deb’s sisters. Bill spent a great deal of time teaching his nieces and nephews so much including the nuances of drawing, chess, and poker.
Throughout his lifetime, Bill continued to express his own language through illusions on paper. Much of his work expresses his irreverent sense of humor and his love of the female form. Some images are at first glance very abstract, then a second look reveals a face or a profile. So many images from a lifetime love of pen and ink.
After Bill passed in 2006, Deb decided that she wanted to create a business that showcased his work. This was a business plan that she often spoke about while sitting through chemo treatments. Thinking of ways to develop, promote, and market a product line gave her hope for the future. It allowed her to fight. At least for a little while.
