recognition & awards
The best recognition that an artist can get, is when an individual thinks enough of the work to purchase it. To that end, I have had my work purchased by numerous collectors from coast to coast and internationally. It's a very humbling and rewarding feeling.
I have also been the recipient of numerous awards to date including:
ELCC Albuquerque, NM - 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 - Several images have been awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place, Honorable Mention and Image of the Year.
