We'll be Retiring in May 2018 after 25+ years

 The new owner of the building where our studio has been located since opening in '93, has let us know that he's going to turn our studio into office space for his construction business. Since it's not feasible to relocate our studio after 25+ years (plus closer to retirement in our careers), we'll be retiring in May 2018.

*As of May 2018; we're fully Retired and our studio is closed.

*Many Thanks

to our clients over the years; 

It was great to meet and work with everyone! ​​​
