One look at Jay’s art and I had to share his story with other SaddleBrooke residents, artists, and those who are just retired but have been there, done that, and might want to do it again.
Jay and his wife, Diane, moved here five years ago from Colorado and still have a home in Florida. They fell in love with the mountains, climate, and activities found in SaddleBrooke. Jay plays tennis six days a week, fits in golf and backgammon, and plays pool.
Diane is very creative and is serving as president of the Stained Glass Club.
His career was in media and advertising for the Gannett Corporation (USA Today and TV and radio stations).
Having bought a home in Florida, after living in Colorado, and experiencing the humidity, he and his wife decided to look for a climate with a drier offering. They stayed in the Preferred Guest Program and found the lifestyle in SaddleBrooke to their liking.
Dabbling in art started as a way for him to express ideas and help people, and he uses his skill level and his creative ability to capture emotions and feelings, while giving pleasure to those who are able to own some of his works.
The Burning House and The Prince before the kiss were two pieces that caught my attention and made me want to share his story and artistic skills with our SaddleBrooke members.
