Having your business recognized amongst your peers is truly a rewarding feeling.  Mostly for me though,  it’s an opportunity to show-case my staff of artisans and trades people who are creating such beautiful work. Winning Ovation Awards are true tributes to my staff, helping to spotlight their abilities and contributions to consumers.
