 These are backdrop images from 12 years working for Julianne Oster. We have a combined effort to showcase her choreography with a scene that represents both the mood of the dance and often individual elements from specific songs or routines. It is magical to work with someone so talented. Her ceaseless energy and positive input with artistic direction of these commissions produces a great season finale for the dance school of 3 year olds to adults.

  I have been painting the backdrops for a dance school for the last 11 years. Here is a detail of 2010 backdrop with black background and glowing creatures, fairies and flying butterflies and moths, lightening bugs using glow in the dark paint which was apparent under various stage lighting and with black out scene changes.

  This was painted soon after 9/11 as a peace memorial. There is one large labyrinth with four 4’ x 4’ paintings of elements on each corner intended to be used by students, patients and caregivers of the school and working hospital. Across the remaining expanse of this cement ‘greened’ patio are 10 other 4’ x 4’ paintings representing world medicines, a painted Japanese Garden and a hawk and dove as entrance guides.
