Four Graphic Designers                 These four designers were very important to me early in my painting career. They taught me by sharing their refined sensitivity to form and color, and when they hired me, by expecting me to produce painted work which met their vision and their high standards. I am very grateful for what I learned from each of them.

I would particularly like to thank Stephanie Furniss, who throughout our long relationship has influenced me deeply and enhanced my experience of the natural and the visual world, through her enjoyment and sensitivity to shape and color, shadow and light.

Marin County Fair, Marin Center, San Rafael, CA: to enhance the striped tent motif of the fair, Stephanie Furniss Design designed fabric flags and free-standing graphic panels which I painted..Stephanie Furniss Design

San Francisco, CA: Richard Garnas designed wall graphics for Bakers of Paris; painted by Garnas Design

Novato, CA: The Office of Michael Manwaring designed 6 images from cities in the North Bay Area: Mill Valley, Petaluma, Sonoma, San Rafael, Novato, and Tiburon..The Office of Michael Manwaring

San Rafael Miracle Mile, CA: Harry Murphy + Friends designed this outdoor signage which I hand-masked and painted .Harry Murphy + Friends

Technical/Historical note: Painted Signage
Several of the large graphic projects on the linked pages incorporated signage as part of the painted imagery.  This required hand-masking and painting the lettering, before
computer-cut vinyl lettering was commercially available.
