Moe, as he's called on the Eastern Shore, is self-taught, and did not become a more serious artist until his 50's. His resume from before his move to the Shore, if he had one, would list all sorts of creative jobs - from working in construction, to printer, photographer, and prop master for TV and movies in Miami.
