We would like to congratulate Raymond Champ on the dedication of the Raymond L. Champ Centers for Emergency Medicine. William created this portrait of Raymond, which was unveiled at the dedication ceremony at WakeMed on Thursday May, 10th. Raymond was the President and CEO of Wakemed from 1983 to 2003.

Working with Raymond was an absolute pleasure, and we are all very pleased with his finished portrait. William was honored by the opportunity to create a portrait of such a great man.
