"I hope that my art will inspire your heart refresh your soul, and that you hear these instruments come alive to reveal their proud voices of pure improvisation."

I first met JD at a band rehearsal. We chatted about trumpets and ended up talking about Steinway pianos. From that conversation, I learned about JD's artwork.
A few months later I was in a customer's home delivering a beautiful new Steinway piano. In their Steinway room was this amazing piece of art of a Steinway. I found out it was JD's. After a google search, I found JD and asked to meet with him. We chatted about art, music, and life. In that discussion, he asked me some questions and got me talking about what I liked when I looked at art. I know very little about art or how to articulate what I wanted.I do know I love Steinway. I love Nashville. I love representing Steinway pianos in Nashville.From that conversation, he created exactly what I wanted. I was amazed! This piece, which JD named Steinway Nashville, now has a prominent place in my office and I couldn't be happier. Now I have a beautiful piece of commissioned art that I will enjoy forever...as well as a friend. And for that, I'm grateful.
