To my many friends around the world!

I would like to take a moment to wish you so much Love and Peace in 2015!  I am thrilled that once again I was included in the PEACE PROJECT’S traveling exhibition and that a print of my art work is available for sale to help with the good works that the PEACE PROJECT will accomplish in the future

During the past 5 years,  just a small bit of what the PEACE PROJECT has accomplished;

Designed a house that has around $500 in building materials and completed construction of our first community of 40 houses, plus communal restrooms, for those that lost everything in Typhoon Haiyan.

  • Continued to support the education of several dozen children in Sierra Leone.
  • Held The Peace Project’s 5th Annual Call for Artists and Traveling Exhibit.
  • Produced two outdoor art festivals “Affair of the Arts” in Culver City, California.
  • Opened six exhibits at The Whole 9 Gallery and hosted dozens of events designed to sell art, raise
         funds, build community and spark discussion of important social issues.
And these are only a few of their gifts to the world.  Please visit http://www.thewhole9.com and check out Peace Project.
