Originally from Newburgh, New York, Shane Daley moved to the Village of Montgomery in 2001.
With a lifeling interest in art, Shane studied illustration while in school. In time, he set aside art for a varied career path and to start a family. His artistic skills were used for drawing cartoon and comic characters for his children.
In 2013, Shane’s wife gave him oil paint supplies for Christmas. Taking up art again, Shane put brush to canvas, something he had not done in many years.
Since then, Shane has taken several classes at the Wallkill River School. His first emerging artist exhibition was in November, 2016.
