“There is something in your work that touches an inner place which is so often buried in the concrete and noise of our lives.  The richness of colors, the peacefulness you convey has a healing quality to it.   Thanks for this brief look within- for a moment of quiet and rest in a hectic and often times sorrow-filled world.”    Beth Bethanauer-Main Street Gallery, Weaverville, CA
