Born in Princeton, NJ in 1963, it seems as if Aaron began drawing right away. “My sister is also an artist and I saw how well she painted, so I wanted to do the same thing.” Aaron studied Marketing Art & Design at Middlesex County College and soon thereafter started painting on textiles at a local flea market. “This is where I first got comfortable using an airbrush and I soon started painting on canvas. I prefer painting with acrylics and inks – my style goes from super realism to playful human figures with long, exaggerated bodies.” Aside from the visual arts, Aaron is a former musician who has toured the world as a member of a national recording act. “I can honestly say that I’ve met and shared the stage with all of my idols, even became good friends with a few of them. Even after all the excitement of concerts and after-parties, I had to come back to my first love – painting.” Aaron has done numerous exhibits around the state of New Jersey, including the Annual Plainfield Art in the Park, where he has taken first place Professional Oils & Acrylics for four years in a row. “I take pride in the fact that my work can put a smile on someone’s face.” Aaron’s work hangs in the collections of Avery Brooks, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Bette Midler, and many others. “God has given me a gift and I would like to share that gift with others.”

Photography by Larry Parsons

Often I am asked how long I have been doing photography. The quick answer is about 40 years. To start, my wife, Jean, encouraged me to pursue photography since I already liked it. For a Christmas present she gave me a photo / darkroom course offered by Bob Denby at Princeton Day School. The bug bit me and I have been doing it ever since. Working in the finance field for a career, I had little time to do as much photo work as I
