Art by Poe "Revealed" I was born in 1975 in Carlisle, PA to Edgar Allan and Emma Poe. I took to art at an early age and was mentored by Joe Pucci, a well known local Italian artist. Apparently I had inherited my creative ability from my distant relation to the great author Edgar Allan Poe. It was always funny to see my friends faces when they came over to my house and saw a stuffed Raven and the portrait of Poe we had hanging in the hallway. My Great Aunt was to have traced our family's lineage back to the author while she taught at The University of Virginia. I continued to excel in art and received numerous art awards while attending grade school as well the Governors Gold Key for "Outstanding Portfolio", while in High School. My art had been featured on local television news and the PBS station for their annual fund raiser telethon. I graduated from High School and was accepted to School of Visual Arts in New York, but decided to attend Collins Art School in Tempe, Arizona where I majored in Illustration. After completion I moved back to Pennsylvania and married my wife Shelly. Shortly after, I followed another artistic passion in culinary arts. In partnership with my wife, La Luz Gallery and Cafe was opened spring of 2004. The gallery/cafe fusion was a success and key in the redevelopment of historic downtown Carlisle. I was a member of the Carlisle Art Association and worked in partnership with Garden Gallery owner Charles Andrews in creating Haverstick Studios for artists in Carlisle. I also ventured into an additional side business called Inspired Images, specializing in murals and faux finishes. Clients included, Casa Mani Cafe, Oasis on Hanover Massage, Golds Gym and the restoration of 'Carlisle's Walk Through History Mural'. I was also the founder of A.R.C, Arts Reaching Community. This was a free program which offered art classes for youth in the community. I had been featured in numerous news paper articles in the Carlisle Sentinel and Harrisburg Patriot News for my artwork and entrepreneurial efforts. In 2008 my love of the southwest and ambition to explore new artistic endeavors drew me back to Arizona. I currently work full time as an Account Manager, and continue to work as a commission based artist for business and residential clients.

My reporting career began at the Chatham Daily News in 1993 with a weekly column I wrote on Tilbury affairs. That ran for most of the year. In 1995 I worked as a weekend reporter for the Tilbury Times. This job ran for the entire year. In 1996, I did some Tilbury Council news for the Windsor Star. That lasted only a few months. Since 2002, I have been working full time for the Tilbury Times, the first year as a reporter/photographer, and the last three years as associate editor, doing everything except advertising. Prior to, and at the beginning of my journalism work, I was a factory worker. I returned to school part time in 1987, earning a BA in English literature and Creative Writing from the University of Windsor in 1993. I am a native of Tilbury and attended high school there. I am a hardworking, honest person. You will find me to be reliable and committed to doing a good job. Thanks for your consideration. Sincerely, Robert Odette.
