First and foremost, this page is not my own original idea. Other artist have done this in the past. But, my inspiration to add it here was sparked by my friend Sondra Carr. Her and I have had many conversation in the past about appropriately giving credit where credit is due. And since we cannot possibly remember every person who inspires or instill inspiration at all times, this page stands to give gratitude to all who have inspired me.
Some of the names that follow will have explanation. Others may not. But, I am a strong believer that no artist succeeds in a vacuum. And we all owe thanks to those that inspire, motivate and support us along our path.
