Painter - Graphic Artist - Architect

       Michael Fuchs      

If art is the window to a person's soul, Michael Fuchs has opened a window for me to a beautiful place. The view from this window is thoughtful, provocative, sensitive, compassionate and insightful. I am sure that once you have taken this journey, you too will find, "a beautiful soul".
