His characters embrace, they reach out to one another, and they reflect the small truths of daily life; sometimes with irony but never with sarcasm. A cosmic enthusiast and deep thinker, CDR literally tries to make the world better through art—promoting peace & love in vibrant color and without self-censure. He makes his home in Portland, Maine.
