“I am an earth person, born under the sign of Taurus. But since we often long for our opposite, I am often drawn to places where earth meets water— shorelines, ponds and streams. I like to include water in my garden, and, indoors, enjoy watering or misting my many plants. This little collection of my engravings was inspired by some of my happier encounters with water.” — Gerard Brender à Brandis.
