A ‘thank you’ must be uttered to a group of people with whom I carry such profound gratitude. These people have graciously given me opportunities to pursue my career as an artist. Without their support, showing my work would be infinitely more difficult. They have given me thoughtful and relevant feedback, provided guidance and mentorship, offered a pristine space through which I can share my work with others, proudly showed my work to collectors and enthusiasts, stood behind me and have often provided that loving shove that I have needed along the way, allowed me to take steps — big and small — that have led me to this very spot. They have been colleagues, confidantes, friends. I am grateful — immensely so — for these hard working individuals who have taken a chance to collaborate with me. I am grateful for their passion. Their knowledge. Drive. Fortitude. And humanity. I want to say thank you to all of those with whom I have worked and have yet to work with. Often, there are not enough ‘thank yous’ for what you do.
