Description Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the third President of the United States from 1801 to 1809. He envisioned America as a force to counter the imperialism of the British Empire. Several major accomplishments during his presidency include the Louisiana Purchase (1803), which doubled the size of the United States, and the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806), which significantly advanced geographic and scientific knowledge of North America. Jefferson was one of the most influential Founding Fathers and scholars consistently rank him as one of the greatest U.S. presidents. -Wikipedia.

Richard Eslinger, Farmington Hills, Michigan Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement After 27 years as an engineer and computer support specialist I’ve retired to do some fun stuff. I work in a trophy and awards shop, Great Lakes Trophies and Engraving in Garden City Michigan (greatlakestrophies.com), building and assembling recognition awards, which are really a kind of art. I am also pursuing a number of personal art projects that give me great satisfaction.
I do carvings in stone, known as petroglyphs, using hand-held power tools. If you are interested in me doing a piece for you, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also use graphics software to produce images for the posters and framed prints you can see in my galleries here at Imagekind, www.rmeslinger.imagekind.com/.
I also enjoy working in my yard, barbequing and smoking great food. I live in Farmington Hills Michigan with my wife, Karen, and father-in-law, Bill.
