“Readers are taken on a journey through the artistic riches of the Catskills and are given a front row seat into the process of making art in the region. Through the interviews and photos that fill How Art is Made, Ms. David guides readers through adventure in Catskill art that no one will want to turn down, or be able to put down once they start reading.”

“By embedding herself in the studios and workshops where artists create in the Catskills, Simona David lends us rare insight into how their original perspectives are re-shaping our rural neighborhoods for the better.”
