I love this artist's work--he's a very spiritual artist, who is strongly connected to the earth, spirit, and the influence of other cultures. He's pleasant and actually very inspiring as a person and as an artist--I like his philosophy. In the fall, he takes part in a gallery tour featuring different artists from various places in the countryside, and much of his work is shown in other galleries--he stands behind his work, he will talk to you about his inspirations. I've maintained a connection with him for the past 3 years--every time I visit him, he welcomes me back to his studio and we catch up, like an old friend. It's a very friendly, comfortable and inspiring gallery to work with.
