TESTIMONIALS

A Note from the Artist.

Most people have never seen my style of work, particularly the Stainless Steelhead Series and are often effusive in their appreciation. Many of the testimonials below refer to that series, which is taking up the majority of my time these days. I still complete a few assemblage sculptures each year when I feel the need and am trying to hold onto these in preparation for a large exhibition in the future. 

 

Thank you

Graham Schodda.

The space was waiting for The Heron. Thanks for your beautiful work.

Happy Heron

Linda and Woody in Seattle, WA

We not only like it: WE LOVE IT. I rarely see something that I turn to my husband and say 'you have to look at this, it is sublime.'I never use that word. It got his attention. We hung it last night in our living room. It is excellent.

​I just wanted you to know that I purchased two of your exquisite etchings at Smith & Vallee very recently -- a Raven feather and the larger Heron artwork. It was love at first sight -- they resonate with me. I am giving them as gifts -- the Heron "in honor" of my husband's long-time cardiologist, who gave him compassionate, values-driven care with compassion, integrity, and "human being" healing; and the Raven feather "to honor" the executive director at the cardiovascular center at our local hospital. Your art speaks to my First Nations' heritage...you don't need to know who I am...just know, you are making a difference in many lives.I wish you much success!  Thank you!

The hogfish looks amazing! My wife was so surprised and excited she hung it up right away. She's going to get a spotlight for it tomorrow but it looks so cool how it changes when you walk to different sides of the room. You really nailed all the details of the hogfish. ​Thanks again!

My boyfriend was extremely surprised and in his words.. "you killed it with this gift.. I love it!" Just the reaction I was hoping for. He decided to hang it above the kitchen sink, the lighting is fantastic in there and just illuminates the picture. It truly completes our kitchen.

My husband and I bought a fantastic etched salmon piece of yours at a benefit auction about a year ago.  We are now in the process of remodeling our kitchen, and would really like to come up with some beautiful but functional backsplash for this remodel.

Margaret

Backsplash installed. It is really beautiful. Great work.

David

The piece arrived in perfect condition, due in no small part to the great crate you made for it.

LOVE my 2 pieces of art! (and secretly wishing I was keeping them for myself)

It was absolutely fascinating to meet the finest and most accomplished grinder in the world!

Mike

Erie, CO

We absolutely love the piece we have.  We are a Northwest-based wholesaler of refrigeration equipment.  The piece is perfect with a certain mechanical feel, the Northwest influence of salmon and it was etched on a recycled refrigeration panel to top it off!

I’m an avid fly tier and spey caster for steelhead and you created this just for me.

It's beautiful and arrived in perfect condition! Thank you again! My brother is really going to enjoy it.

Your profession has a special trait, with your individual work directly touching peoples’ lives, in our case dozens of times each day.  Not many professions in the modern world are really like that, instead being very layered and indirect.

John

We love our new artwork. It’s different all day long with the changing light. 

Paul and Debby

It was a huge success!  Your Fish Tale brought the highest amount.

My wife recently gave me one of your works (Walleye) and I love it

I wanted to personally reach out to you and let you know that I think your work is AMAZING. I am an Art major that emphasized in printmaking. Etching and lithography were my areas of passion. What you have done with those panels to crest such stunning images that move as your eye moves over the piece is just spectacular.

We just love our Pair of Kings
