Creating art
for meaningful collections...

I love to do artwork that is so personally meaningful my client would not happen to find it even in the most intensive gallery search. The level of satisfaction is completely different.

 wrong with the mouth

...Thank you for the wonderful job you did on Carol's painting. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she gazed upon...the memories she will have for lifetime....  --Marleen Bednarik, Ohio

...Very nice. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I love his 'smirk' smile. It is so him. The eyes are perfect, the t-shirt is spot on...incredible... the furniture looks exactly like the real thing. I really like how you did the one chess piece. The octopus, army men, and computer game have so much meaning. I really like the way you incorporated them. We have been so fortunate to have you create these three portraits of our boys ... for us and future generations. Your work is beautiful and priceless....-Chris Endress, Indiana, USA

The painting is beyond words. Mother was shocked when she saw it. She was speechless for a couple of minutes and then tears rolled down her cheeks.I don;t think anyone  cherishes one of your paintings as much as Mom unless it would be me. I am so grateful to you.... .-
- Susan Best, Charlotte,NC

No one knows what this means to me. There are no words to explain. They would just have to know...-Janet B, Durham, NC

...'Took a short 1 week class in watercolor earlier this Fall and it was really below par. I really felt sorry for new students--no color theory, no discussion on lights, values-nothing! I'm so thankful you gave me that foundation....-Sue K.(US expat after repatriation)

'Un Merci' for your truly inspirational class. I can't tell you how much I learnt from you and you gave so much of yourself as a teacher.  I would never have believed you if you'd told me on Monday that by Friday I would do a self portrait in which did in fact look  like me. If you ever do Drawing part 2 in the same format count me in. [edit. 5 consecutive-days] -Vyvyan L (Scotish expat)
