About Earle's Fine Art

Earle draws from memory and his imagination. He begins each drawing with no certain plan. He lets his pen, pencil or brush wander lightly and randomly—until he begins to recognize forms. Then, using the pen or brush in the same manner, he develops the forms into the finished work. Earle uses color in the same way, whether watercolor, pastel, conté, charcoal or colored pencils.

Some of Earle's art is purely whimsical, intended only to please the eye or pique the viewer's imagination. Other art is intended to tell a story (real or imagined) or remind the viewer of a place or event. But because the source for Earle's inspiration is usually his own imagination, the viewer is often left wondering... is this a real place? are these real flowers? are these real birds?

About Earle's Illustrated Children's Books

Earle's children's books have one simple objective... to stimulate learning. The stories view the world from the child's point-of-view, searching for knowledge through questions, conversations, imagination and humor. All of the stories are illustrated with Earle's colorful and often thought-provoking art.
