    I am vastly impressed with the results of New Clay House and found myself smiling at the amazingly uplifting color changes you made. The positive energy transferred from the computer screen to me instantly. The jazzy new surface covering the face of the front desk in the entrance is a brilliant, fun way to tie everything together and it works so well.

    What a huge transformative gift you’ve given this organization and the people it serves! Your talents have reached a very high level of achievement.
