About the Artist
My name is Aldo Arena. I am a retired Northrop Grumman engineer, having retired in 2007 as a Senior Technical Fellow after a 42 years career in
Since my retirement, I have established an engineering consulting company and have been providing consulting services to the U.S Navy.
The spare time afforded me by retirement has made it possible to explore my love of painting. Four years ago I started oil painting with the help of night classes offered by the town of Smithtown.
What I find most fascinating is that when you allow yourself to advance in your skills, you become surprised at what you can accomplish as an artist.
My paintings have been on exhibit in one-artist shows at the Nesconset Library in Nesconset NY, and at the Apple Bank in Smithtown, NY. I have also participated in juried expositions at the Mill Pond Gallery in Saint James NY, and in art shows at the Smithtown Library Main Branch in Smithtown, NY. I look forward with anticipation at what tomorrow may bring.
