About me begins with you…
My family, friends, collectors, teachers and students.
I’m profoundly grateful for a lifetime filled to the brim with inspiration and influence.
Your encouragement, ideas, and generous support created the artist I’ve become.
A full time artist doing what I love every day, I’m an open minded & creative guy… dependable, professional, and easy to do business with. I’m a hard working native Vermonter who enjoys meeting and working with exceptionally nice people doing good things.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give it away.
