Passionate for good design 


Over thirty years ago I was introduced to post war modern design. I started to expand my knowledge of the designers, their designs and the companies that produced them from what little resources that were at the time. My college background in commercial art and graphic design helped me refine my sense of what makes good design.

Already a collector for much of my life I then began to hunt out these designs. As I accumulated more than I needed I sold to galleries and dealers in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. I then began selling at shows and then opening my own galleries.

Thirty plus years later the same passion is there. The thrill of discovering a forgotten piece and the satisfaction placing it in a good home. Helping young collectors focus on making quality acquisitions. And imparting some of my knowledge in the hope of instilling that same passion in others.

The Gallery
