Artist's comment: A mutual friend recommended Scott visit our family art gallery on Scott's stay in Seattle, where there was a Galleon Halfwood Press on display. Scott decided to add a Galleon Halfwood to his design studio in Colorado. You can learn all about Scott Skinner on his Web site. Plus, a fascinating article about kites in the Seattle Times.
