has been the owner/operator of the local bicycle shop in
Scotch Plains for the last 30 years.
He was interested in art almost farther back than he can remember and was
headed toward a vocation in art before being pushed toward a business degree. He hadn't touched his pencils or brushes
for almost 30 years as he went to school, raised a family and ran the bike shop. Then, a little nudge from his wife
reintroduced art into his life. Starting with graphite and slowly finding his way to the other mediums, he has focused
on the most difficult subject for him, which is portraits. And now, he has sunk knee deep into it winning a blue ribbon
first and second time out at a SPFAA art show.
