Deceased, Decorated Vietnam War Veteran's Dream is Alive through an Internet Art Community

Share Article

Les Bois Arts is a new Web site that allows painters, writers and photographers the opportunity to showcase and sell their work.

Cindy Williams recently launched Les Bois Arts,, a cost effective Web site that offers artists a new platform gain exposure and sell their work.

Williams created the Web site in honor of her late friend, writer Jeffrey L. Cox.

Cox was a combat decorated veteran of the Vietnam War. Upon his return home to Boise, Idaho, Cox felt fortunate that, having witnessed the atrocities of war and the death of close friends, he had suffered no physical wounds. Or so he thought.

In 1999, more than 25 years later, Jeffrey Cox was diagnosed with chronic liver disease, linked to the defoliant Dioxin -- otherwise known as Agent


Unable to work because of the fatigue associated with the drug therapy and the disease itself, Mr. Cox had to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle. With William's help, he learned how to use a computer and began writing.

Consumed by a new passion, Cox was on the threshold of launching a new career as a writer when he passed away in February, 2003. Cox's unfulfilled dream was to have his work published before he died. Williams created Les Bois Arts to honor her beloved friend, publish his writing and provide a place other artists to showcase and sell their work.

Williams hopes to encourage and support artists who find peace, therapy, healing or joy in the creation of art, just like Cox did.

The Web site charges a small startup fee, which gives artists a web page and hosting. If artists already have a Web site, artists' profiles on Les Bois Arts can offer additional visibility for their Web sites. If they do not have Web sites, artists' profile pages allow them to have an Internet presence without the cost of developing an entire Web site on their own
