in gratitude:

The creation of the A.V.A Renaissance Initiative website (in its present form) would have been impossible without the generous support of the following people:

First of all I am grateful to Janette Briere and Jim Erkiletian for providing me (over the past seven years) with a quiet, comfortable and uncomplicated space to create the bulk of the art, music and writings contained within the website. Heart-felt thanks to you both.

And thanks also to Terry Porter, Herb and Susie Hammond, Patricia Howell, Gary Bandzmer, Lynn Burrows, Cheryl MacNeil, Tom Sanborn, Hugette Sansonet, Evelyn Pinkerton, Rosemary Campbell and John Archer.
