Flashes of Hope

There is timelessness in a portrait. It is a memorial to a moment of personal history, where a telling expression speaks for a life. The Mona Lisa's smile. Albert Einstein's eyes....Please click on the link to read the article in this past Sunday's Star Ledger about AAG Member Jeff Martin's work with Flashes of Hope. Read the full article here.

You are truly an artist Jeff...you preserve moments,memories and lives, you give a visual voice to others who might otherwise go unnoticed and you use your talents to serve a much greater purpose. Thank you for your selflessness. Great article!
