Fantasy," and talking to the press for the first time in years, before

speaking with John "was like talking with someone you’d known all your

Park Zoo and the Ellarslie Mansion "Monkey House." When the family

close human neighbors there and then that I formed up the habit of
drawing plants and other woods life, branching out to fields, farms,
and rural waste places with my mother’s help."
Her father was a ceramic engineer for the American Standard
Corporation and a member of the American Ceramic Association.
"Crossing back and forth to Trenton accounts for other themes that
shaped my interior life and exterior work: An affinity for the river,
bridges, bridge contours, and their invitation to stretch out and find
