I am a freelance artist for hire in the entertainment business and private sector. For over 25 years I have created unique environments for movies, television, opera, and theme parks. I am a proud union Scenic Artist, local 800 and Set Painter, local 729.
In 2003 I started my own company, Pretty in Paint and over the years I have put together outstanding crews to execute many beautiful one-of-a-kind residential and commercial commissions.
There’s no way to show it all.
The few listed projects on this website represent undertakings large and small - sometimes in loose playful scenarios where the art developed as we went along and other times under the defined guidance of a designer.
I am an artist who loves to contribute to “small ideas” and turn them into grand visual statements. If it’s not seen here, maybe it should be. Pitch me an idea - many interesting projects have started that way.

I have worked with hundreds of people on many, many, many projects. My GALLERY shows just a mere sample of things to inspire you and give ideas of what is possible with paint and a team of good artists.
There are examples of murals, faux finishes, painted marbles & woodgrains, gold & metallic leafing, patinas & aging, fantasy finishes, signage, specialty UV paint treatments, and plenty of behind-the-scenes Hollywood magic.
If you are looking to find a professional, easy going team that tends to deadlines & details, fosters a healthy worksite, and can help with design or construction if needed, please call or send an email and we will see how we can help you.
