Update on past unscrupulous "gallery" relationships~

The unsuccessful gallery relationship with the following parties was resolved in court and I was eventually paid for my artwork that they sold, after many many hours of physical and psychological effort. These individuals seem to operate under a variety of different aliases...based in Sedona, Arizona, or possibly Los Angeles, CA. Also, possibly seeking to have "investors" in film production schemes, or other health and wellness related business scams/schemes. Consider yourself forewarned... Aalia Golden, Aalia Kazan (Sedona), Rev. Aalia K. Golden Other parties and names involved in the business were: Aalia K. Golden, Aalia Kazan, Mark G. Gilhuis, Marcus G. Golden, Marcus Gilhuis, Studio Manzanita, Manzanita Gallery, Golden Manzanita Gallery, Manzanita Magic, Kentia Yoseyva, Qnta Yoseyva, and Light Stream Productions.
