« I've known Youssef for a good 5 years or so now, and we met through an artist group. He has guided me on a few art projects, and has given me teaching in some really neat techniques that I have since gone off and used. And now have sold some pieces. I feel strongly I owe that to him. He's worth a try, knowledgable, and honest in feedback. You won't be disappointed. »

I've known Youssef for a good 5 years or so now, and we met through an artist group. He has guided me on a few art projects, and has given me teaching in some really neat techniques that I have since gone off and used. And now have sold some pieces. I feel strongly I owe that to him. He's worth a try, knowledgable, and honest in feedback. You won't be disappointed.

Youssef is empathetic, patient and calm. He is genuine and thoughtful, a caring and giving friend and colleague. His calm and relaxed manner puts others at ease, and one immediately senses compassion and interest in the well-being of others.
