is so refreshing to meet an artist who enjoys life and seeks to
bring smiles to people's faces. Too often art is mired down by
weight of depression or angst. Your colors and designs and overall
philosophy are very refreshing, and we thank you.

the message that you send. I'm still smiling.
out your site and think what you're doing (giving the paintings
away as long as people smile more) is totally awesome.
from Ottawa, Canada. What a Superb idea!!!!
great stuff. I told someone it looked very west coast like i haven't
seen out here...
cousin from Kansas City sent me your site (I live in Wayland, Ma) and
information on your SMILE project. Kudos to you...!! It's funny,
my mantra raising 4 kids is "Smile, it feels good."
received a link to your email and I am superbly impressed! It strikes
me so odd to have had someone send me this link. I have experienced
a similar dilemma, particularly over the last few weeks. I commented
to my boyfriend just the other day how sad it makes me to see so
many unhappy people walking around (he explained itıs the holiday
season) and I said to him why donıt people greet you with a smile
anymore? Is it really that hard to make eye contact or say a polite
hello? I have always, and I will continue to do so daily, greet
strangers with a smile and do my best to be a polite and respectful
person. You never know how one smile could effect a personıs day
and sometimes thatıs all it takes to remind you that there is still
some good left in this world. I think you are doing a tremendous
service. You have warmed my heart and given me a little faith back
in humanity. Keep up the good work. We need more people with your
attitude in Kansas City.
received the information about your site from Ms. Moreno in Kansas
City, another aspiring artist. I enjoyed seeing your very cute Smiley's!
What vibrant colors to brighten this drab world we live in some
checked out your website, and was further impressed by your work,
especially the smile boston project... that's something someone
should have done a long, long time ago, but it's great to see it
being done, and I think it's brilliant. I really like seeing an
artist trying to make a difference in the world through their work. I
think art has power and is more than a means of personal expression
"Oh my GOD! This is such a great idea! I am always talking
about why Bostonians/New Englanders don't smile much at all."
your site and paintings, the message is good for the society. I
think it needs to be elsewhere as well, not only in Boston."
is phenomenal! You have hit on a great idea. It's a way of going
public with your art without getting arrested for doing grafitti."
"I checked out your site and was impressed (not just the painting
part). You have been an inspiration for me to keep pressing on with
