Theatrical Painting

 

Rob Lippert, my architectural partner, is also a scenic designer and fabricator for several professonal theaters.

 

I have provided technical theatrical painting for many of his sets and occasionally place fine art pieces on set when required.

 

The opportunity gives me the chance to work large and develop special techniques to depict a variety of materials and set moods as part of the production.
