While I have not been able to find any biographical information or additional works in a cursory online search, this folk art image needs no additional context to appreciate. The buildings are rendered with remarkable detail in bright whites, yellows and greys against stark green hills. The horizontal composition offers a panoramic view. And we are brought back in time by a machine age parked amongst older buildings on an undeveloped hillside. Another old fashioned detail is an inscription along the base of the image that is partially obscured by framing.
