Medford Sneak Preview Poll

In a recent Medford Sneak Preview poll, their readers named me their Favorite Local Artist in the February 2017 issue! I am so grateful to receive this kind of recognition from local art enthusiasts. I’m in good company too—congratulations to Cheryl D. Garcia and Julie Veronneau, who also made the list.
