“In my eighty years I have experienced many emotional moments but frankly none so profound as when I first saw your portrait of me. You captured my very soul. My resignation from the Board of Cephalon marked the end of a fifty-five year career in the pharmaceutical industry. I see in your portrait a man at the top of his game and very much satisfied with the outcome."

“John's talent for portraiture is unparalleled. His ability to capture a loved one goes beyond getting the little details right. While that alone is remarkable, he is also able to highlight the person's soul and it leaps from his canvas. John's portait of my father is truly incredible. What an honor! Thank you, John.”
