Gallery Exhibit
Not to be too braggadocios, but I proudly announce that many of my art pieces are now on display in a unique and eclectic gallery off Palm Valley Road. If you are local to the North Florida area, please contact me for directions and hours. Otherwise, please view my comprehensive inventory of work on my virtual gallery at
