I've known Rob Pulleyn for more than twenty years. We met through his daughter when she and I were attending the same college. Over these many years I have grown to respect and admire him for his vibrant creativity, an inspiring capacity to think big, and his deep-rooted commitment to the arts within our shared home of Asheville and the surrounding region. He was the co-founder of Lark, which became my professional home during my extensive publishing career, and is now an accomplished potter and the driving force behind the exciting Marshall High Studios. It was therefore a thrill when his daughter gifted him a portrait session. What a sincere gesture of love from her … and an honor for me to capture my perspective on this wonderful man.
