Bob Dreabit grew up there in that valley in Northeastern Pennsylvania, near the river that divided it in half, a smart kid with a competitive spirit and a love of the sport. His interests would later shift to a passion for music, poetry, and all things creative. As a young adult, he would venture from that valley outward. His travels took him to Philadelphia and then across the continent to San Francisco and later Los Angeles. These travels, experiences, and adventures would become the fuel that drove Bob to take to the paint. Now back in Pennsylvania, both a husband and a father, Bob makes paintings that draw from that same space that propelled him to venture out so many years ago now steadied by his experience. The world he conjures is often abstract with a dose of cartoonish realism. Bob always seeks to find the beauty and the humor in any situation, and it is that spirit he brings to this work.
