Striking a cord of reality, the precious wood carvings by Mario Dilitz renew high quality laminated wood introducing “a new form of stability, which wouldn’t have been possible in its natural condition.” Sense the child in his innocence, carrying a large fish behind his back. Or involve yourself with the dilemma of the ivory lady struggling to cover her intimate corners. Expressions on their faces are strong, standing mostly tiredly thin, although they are all pure and almost holy.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
