Hey Johnny! Thanks for dropping by. I posted these for that very reason so am glad you enjoyed them. His portraits are especially accomplished I thought but all the other work is interesting too. I keep trying to post women artists I have discovered and feel have been overlooked and the same criteria seems to apply to artists of colour too :(
