John Hovan's Biography Page

This is a picture of my dog named Max and I. Do you want to see a picture of my maltese named Linus?

This is a Tiffany Wisteria Stained Glass Lamp Replica I completed on December 8th, 1994. It is comprised of over 2200 pieces of glass and took me 3.5 years to complete. Original Wisteria's sell for $100,000 to $500,000 if you can find one. A replica like this can fetch $10,000 to $20,000. Yes, I am very glad this project is finished! Note: The lamp is pictured with a base I welded together. A replica of the original base is being ordered.

This is the cover of a gardening CD I created for the Macintosh computer. It is currently sold through selected software stores.

This is one of the toys you have to sell when you get married and try to buy back when you get divorced! This is an '85 Corvette with computer race chip, Monza exhaust, Gotti Rims and Greenfield spoilers. The most exciting car I have ever driven!
