NEW JERSEY:  
Early Portraits

Mike was born and raised in New Jersey,
a Quaker descendant of Betsy Ross.
There he exhibited an early interest in the
art of the portrait, drawing family, friends,
and celebrities that he admired in charcoal
and pastels working mostly from
photographic materials.  It was there in
New Jersey that he also made his first
entrepreneurial portrait effort with a
display in a home town barber shop that
included pastel portraits of Paul Newman,
Sean Connery, Frank Sinatra, and
Winston Churchill with a sign that asked
$10 for a color portrait and $6 for a
charcoal.  Included also was his first hand
written guarantee.  A guarantee that he has
continued to maintain for anyone hiring him
to draw or paint a portrait for them today.
