Welcome! I'm the Gold Leaf Man, that tall guy who's been seen
all over the country, usually bent over and working on some of the finest firetrucks, boats, trailers, cars and
signs in the US!
I'm also one of the few artisans who has continued
to work the traditional art of hand lettered, gold leaf gilding. Thirty years of
experience, coupled with my initial training among Philadelphia's signpainters and gilders has enabled me to
continue to bring this craft to those who value it's incredible beauty, the richness and the longevity
of genuine gold leaf! The pride in which the owners display their vehicles, signs, boats and
equipment is evident in the care they take and I am honored to be a part of making it happen!
Here is a short video from a local TV News feature
