The works in Galleries: '99, '00, & '01, have been donated to HASL and Southern Oregon Wheelchair Sports and Recreation. They will be distributed to independent living centers throughout Oregon to be used for motivation and educational purposes.

Statement from the artist: I have a new perspective about a subject in which I lacked experienced.
These works are observations of obstacles and adaptation, apathy and participation, query and research, weakness and strength. I try to express the dynamics of humans to adapt and to make the best of a situation.
I invite you to view from "a different perspective".
