News I have waited patiently to tell you...

Today I had the most amazing experience, and the great honor of being at the Philadelphia Convention Center for the installation of 3 of my pieces which are now a part of the permanent collection of the City of Philadelphia. 
Back in March I received a call from the Management of the Convention Center letting me know that they decided to purchase three of my pieces: Shields of Life: Valour, Temperament and Tessellations, as part of their new art collection.  As this unfolded I was afraid to share it with anyone.  I felt I needed to wait until I actually saw the pieces in their new location. Today it happened.

There is a plaque with my short bio and the inspiration behind each of the pieces in the making.  In the meantime if you are in the vicinity of the Philadelphia Convention Center, on the Terrace Level across the street from the Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts, I would love for you to see the pieces on the wall dedicated to my work.  

I am beyond humbled and honored!
