I am thrilled, humbled and honoured to be part of this outstanding show. (Hot Topics – Bold Expressions”.) This is a dream come true to be chosen for an Award of Merit and also an International Artist Showcase Award. I have been following Manhattan Arts since 2012, enjoying the depth of artistic talent that is displayed. Your website has some new fans through my sharing of this incredible success with friends and family. You are a true clear light in this world, Renee. Thank you for all you do. ~ Janice Andrews
I sold a painting to someone who saw it within a month after it appeared on the Manhattan Arts International website. ~ Miche Watkins
The publicity you have given me has increased the demand for my work. My sales have increased and I have received several big commissions including a very large piece. ~ Kimberly Forness Wilson
The Healing Power of ART exposure is obviously getting play around the world. I’ve seen hits on my site from every continent and, what’s better, the visitors to the site stick around and view multiple images. They don’t just pop on and off. This speaks to the influence of you and Manhattan Arts. I always say to my kids that you can’t soar like an eagle if you hang around with turkeys. So I gain credibility as an artist by being associated with you and Manhattan Arts. ~ Alan M. Richards

Dear Renee – you get better and better! The years go by and each show exceeds the previous one. You are more than an “artrepreneur” – you are a catalyst for quality. Artists today are discovering a new pride and honour through being promoted by you. They must feel, as I do, that whatever the diversity of expressions you nurture, they are always of a very high standard. The world could sure use a few more like you. Thank you so much for all of your devotion and good work in the name of ART! ~ Keith Morant
