"Throughout my career, my personal and professional mission has been to connect people through visual art and design. Well crafted and placed art, photography and design tells a story, influences thinking, informs an audience, stirs emotions and leaves the first impression about a person, space, message, product, event or venue.

"The following links will connect you to nearly 30 years of my commitment to the arts, starting with a career as an art director, then transitioning to opening a design studio in New York City, to developing a fine art printing company, to creating a gallery and art studio with a unique focus - all serving a wide variety of clients." - TW
