Accomplishments

I am one of the few artists living today who specializes in the Art Deco genre. I am an expert in Art Deco aesthetics, architecture, fashion, performance, design, and lifestyle. I have been studying Erte for over 20 years and have trained directly under Bob Mackey's assistant Diana Eden who worked very closely with Erte in his later years before his death. I excel with everyday communications and networking revolving around high end art buyers. I am one of the few Art Deco designers working full time in the current generation passing down it's knowledge, techniques, and visual representations to the public through professional art and education.
