Gray-Haus Studios Holiday Card

In November of 2017, my friend, Christy Gray of Gray-Haus Studios Consulting, commissioned me to create a piece of original art to be printed in a limited edition as holiday cards for her clients. The little house shape is an element of her corporate identity, and the lake image reflects her personal love of Lake Erie where she enjoys spends her time when not doing a terrific job placing art for clients.

Governor's Awards for the Arts

In 2013 I was commissioned by the Ohio Arts Council to create the Governor's Awards for the Arts. These prestigious awards, presented by the Governor of Ohio, are granted to individuals and organizations who have distinguished themselves in service to the arts in Ohio.  Each honoree received a framed and inscribed original painting from the Refuge Series that I created below.
