In Loving Memory

Our dear friend Charley Harper passed away on Sunday in Cincinnati. I am so happy and honored to have met him and worked with him. His kindness, talent and wit are a constant inspiration to us and he will be missed!

Oh my goodness! I just happened upon your shop today and smiled when I saw Charley's work. My dad is a professional bird photographer and loved Charley's work. I know he met him on at least one occasion. He'll be so sad to hear of Charley's passing.

I'm sorry to hear about that, I love his work and found it really inspiring as a painter (though my paintings don't look like his at all)

I'm sorry to hear about it too... I've been using the cards he illustrated for lots of notes lately, and they are always a huge hit!
