“…..the large Hudson River ‘scape, with the sky opening with a bit of light, was, for me, breathtakingly beautiful. It is, by any standard, a masterpiece… and I love it.” – Ray Steiner, editor- Art Times Journal
“WOW!!! Your work is wonderful! I have to come and see it in person. Your colors are so alive and yes, you capture the energy. Just gorgeous! – Vicki
“I genuinely enjoyed the class this semester and your insight. It has awakened an appreciation for things that has been long dormant. I can truly say that no other class I have taken has given me an opportunity to spend more time with my children. It has been a great joy to sit down to work on my homework and watch my children gather around and start to make their own artwork. I just wanted to let you know you made a difference and are appreciated by me and my family. Have a great break.” – JS
