Bob Giordano was born and raised in New York City. As a child he spent many days drawing and painting with his father, Joseph Giordano, founder of Giordano Studios. Time was spent field sketching at New York City's zoos as well as at the Museum of Natural History. Having this fondness for the outdoors and natural world, these venues inspired his love of nature. Weather it was hiking in the Adirondacks or venturing the coast around Long Island, he absorbed all that nature brings. An avid fisherman, he spends many hours out over Long Island Sound observing local fish, birds and wildlife.
