JESSICA LYN GRANT was born in Redwood City, California, September 14, 1968. While attending Wagner Ranch Elementary School in Orinda, California, Jessica would come home and draw in her playroom. This book contains some of the whimsical creations she produced during that brief period called childhood. Stories include "Balloon" - a hot air balloon dream adventure - and "How To Clean a Room".
I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada (1939), and graduated from Stanford University in 1961 with a degree in Architecture, followed by a Bachelor of Architecture from Rice University in 1963. Concurrent with my architectural career, I actively photographed friends and documented GLBT Pride Parades in San Francisco - exhibiting my work in one man shows and receiving several awards. Following retirement in 1994, I pursued exploration of the male form through painting and ceramic sculpture. Although my work includes abstracts and many other themes, focus on the male body has clearly fueled my creativity as no other subject has.
