In May of 2004 - I was honored as "Artist of the Month" at the Poughkeepsie, NY location.  

​I received tremendous support during my 'Artists' Reception' as family, friends, neighbors and coworkers came to view and support my photography.

A collection of 15 images were on display in the coffee-bakery cafe were more than a dozen pieces sold and found a new place in people's homes.
