“I can not thank you enough for this opportunity. I was able to purchase the materials to complete the 12 large scale art pieces shown above. I have since been offered a solo show by June Hund on Case Western's campus and a solo show at Jade Gallery in Chesterland. Individual pieces have been shown at The Sandusky Cultural Center, The Cleveland Raw Artists Event, and at The Galleries of Cleveland State.”
