I am a decorative painter specializing in historic restoration and am currently employed as a project manager for a restoration painting firm in Baltimore, Maryland. My experience includes all phases of paint restoration including estimating, bidding, methodology, general painting, decorative finishing and job site management. I am familiar with common historic paint materials and processes and am experienced with damage assessment and making recommendations for treatment. In addition to historic work, I also do residential and commercial decorative painting including wood graining, marbling, glazing, venetian plaster, murals, painted furniture and metal leafing. I have also worked as a scenic work for many theaters in the Baltimore/Washington area including Center Stage, Everyman Theater and the Olney Theater Center. My professional awards include three Craftsmanship awards from the Builders Congress and Exchange of Metropolitan Baltimore. I have an academic background in art and enjoy painting and drawing, as well as ceramic sculpture and glass mosaics.
