Although Neal took up art in college many years ago, art had not been a big part of his life. Then in 2010 Neal attended a Sunday morning worship service at a church in Lindenhurst NY. But something was different about this service. Instead of the seats being arranged in rows, they were arranged around tables covered with drawing paper. Each table had a bowl in the middle filled with colorful crayons. Everyone was instructed to let their creativity flow during the course of the service and feel free to draw with the crayons. Neal got involved drawing a tree. He drew a bird shooting out of the top of the tree towards a bright light in the sky. He had the roots of the tree morphing into fish and representing sea life. That day Neal humbly received many compliments about his artistic talent and his unusual imagination. Since that Sunday in 2010, Neal has let his imagination flow into the world of art. The results has been the gallery of inspired artwork displayed on this site. In addition to his artwork Neal has added a gallery of photos of beautiful Long Island. When Neal's not working his job and dabbling in artwork and photography, he likes to workout at the gym, participate in a variety of water sports and enjoys Yankee baseball.
