This is just a small sampling of the work we have been producing since 2005. We have been producing hand painted signs for over 30 years and our studio was featured in the documentary film "Sign Painters" released in 2013. We use the same traditional materials and techniques that have been around for centuries. Starr Studios provides original design and illustration for brands of all sizes as well as hand painted elements for restaurant and retail interiors and storefronts. The studio also works closely with architects and interior designers on gilded glass (verre eglomise) features for home owners and private collectors. The studio provides: Illustration & Design, Interior Sign Painting & Interior Murals, Gold Leafing, Gilded Glass (Verre Eglomise) and Auto/Moto Heritage Lettering
