Woodcarvings by Tom Nero

Tom Nero, a successful businessman and lifelong (now age 88) resident of Brecksville, was a promising artist in high school (class of 1948).  He won an art scholarship to Cleveland Institute of Art, but instead earned Business degrees (Ph. D) at Kent State University.  Entrepreneur that he is, he founded Aurora Farms Factory Outlets as the first of its kind in Ohio (6th in USA).  In the 1990s, Tom sold Aurora Farms, taught at CSU and KSU, and took up woodcarving, without benefit of any formal art instruction.
