Welcome to South Road!

What you'll find here:

Even though South Road is in the beautiful Hudson Valley, I grew up near the Asbury Park, N.J., boardwalk, a very different kind of place that shaped my eye. I've always been attracted to objects with strong graphic elements, bold lines, and whimsical, nostalgic humor. The contrast between elegant and funky still excites me. But most of all I’m drawn to those things that have strong visual interest and lasting emotional impact.

If there is something you are looking for, let us know; we are always updating our inventory and website. Check back and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions. Come visit my store at 502 Warren Street, Hudson, NY, or by appointment at my barn in Stanfordville, NY.

Thanks so much for visiting.
