Lewis Isaac Testa – Kingston, NY

Art is different to everyone. It can be beautiful or evoke emotions as well as relax you. To Lewis Isaac Testa it has been going on for 44 years now. It has been the one constant in his life that proved to be more valuable that he could have imagined and in turn has changed his life for the better.

He attended the Art Students League in New York for four years and was awarded the Merit Scholarship for the last three years he attended. He studied Fine Art Illustration under Robert E. Shultz as well as Anatomy under Robert Beverly Hale. He also studied Portrait painting under John Howard Sanden.

He obtained employment with Edward Fields Inc. An Exclusive hand made rug manufacturer for the “Rich and Famous”. Bill Gates, Frank Sinatra, Madonna as well as the Whitehouse. His Last project was to help design the Oval Room Rug for the Whitehouse for President Bush.

In 2003 he suffered a stroke due to a spinal fusion, which left him paralyzed on his right side. It took 4 years of intense physical therapy to feel normal again. Art was not in the forecast for the rest of his life. But then his granddaughter was born and Art came back into his life. All that you see is art after his stroke. He said I guess you have to loose everything to gain what really matters. He considers himself the luckiest man alive.
