Charley Harper

Charley Harper is an artist that was introduced to me by my mom. She has been an admirer of his for a long time and when she bought his retrospective a few years ago I was inspired by his simple graphic style and of course, his love of animals. 

His work is mostly silkscreen or lithograph and many works have been reproduced as off-set productions of posters, cards, and calendars.  You can find his geometric designs in many bookstores and gift shops and once you see his work it is easy to recognize. Even though his wildlife is represented flattened with hard edges he still manages to capture the essence and personality of the creatures and their habitat. Enjoy!
