Dear Friends, Collectors, Patrons of the Arts,
I have been very fortunate and blessed indeed to have the
opportunity to do what I love for a living. I am grateful with every
sunrise and sunset that our Creator has given me the chance to draw and
paint for yet another day.
It is with equal gratitude that I remember all of you, for you have,
at one time or another, seen something in my work that moved you
to acquire a particular piece for your home.
I am also, in addition, so very grateful to those fellow artists
and friends who have shared so generously of their knowledge and time,
and helped me along the way.
