I came across some of your works which i found quite impressive and intriguing. I must admit your doing quite an impressive job. You are undoubtedly good at what you do.With that being said, I would like to purchase some of your works as a surprise gift to my wife in honor of our upcoming wedding anniversary. It would be of help if you could send some pictures of your piece of works, with their respective prices and sizes, which are ready for immediate (or close to immediate) sales. My budget for this is within the price range of $500 to $5000.I look forward to reading from you in a view to knowing more about your pieces of inventory. As a matter of importance, I would also like to know if you accept check as a means of payment.Regards.........."

"Some of the "Sweets" series are really satisfying to look at, some are nothing more than a pile of cakes.Not impressed with the wigs. Incongruous images. The animals looked contrived and out of place. The wigs didn't morph, they just had some out of place thing tangled into them."

"I do enjoy your artwork also....really creative and fun to look at...nice use of space and color too...very good"
