murals & faux finishing
Renaissance Studios was started by Ely Scaradamalia in 2001 in Savannah GA, and I joined him in 2002 to
help with some of the mural projects he was working on. My contribution was largely in creating
the drawings that the murals would be based on, and working on small details in the finished paintings.
Our proudest work was the Mighty Eighth Airforce Museum Molesworth Airfield mural. Completed over a 2 year period,
this mural stretched our abilities and friendship in all directions... from inventing tools to help us generate
panoramic perspective, to the sheer effort of producing an oil painting almost 100 feet long! We parted ways
in 2005 and now Ely lives and works in Fairhope Alabama.
