Many years ago when I first moved to New York City, I met Len Favara. He was an Art Director at Trahey Advertising. Lucky for me he hired me to be his assistant. Trahey Advertising later became Peter Rogers Associates and Len and I continued to work together for 9 years. Back then I was always bugging him because he wasn’t painting. About six years ago he invited me to a showing of his work in Punta Gorda, Florida. He inspired me to get more serious about my work.

He takes everyday people in everyday situations and glorifies them. He brings back a simpler time in Bensonhurst Brooklyn.
