Artist Spotlight at Eastlake Framing

Artist Spotlight at Eastlake Framing

I have a large collection of work on display at Eastlake, including the signature piece for this show, “Summit Sunrise” which is seen above.  The artist’s reception has already passed and was a huge success.  My work will be on display at Eastlake through May, 2014.  My fine art landscape photography looks stunning there and the staff of Eastlake framing welcome visitors and they are very helpful if potential collectors happen to have any questions about my work or any custom framing questions you might have.

Eastlake has put a lot of work into this exhibit and I would like to express my sincere gratitude Eastlake’s owner, Deb Spicer as well as to Eastlake’s employees, Denice and Diane.  They make a wonderful team and have been a pleasure to work with from the day I met them.
