His photography has been on exhibit in coffee houses and college campuses throughout Connecticut, and several juried shows. He is currently working on two memoirs, one based on his life as it has centered around cars including his experiences as a race car and rally driver.

Please join Faith and Peter for their only solo artists' show this year due to family priorities. Forty-five of their finest pieces will be on display at the Cyrenius H. Booth Library.
