Robert, a self-taught artist was born in 1969 in LaSalle, Quebec, Canada. Robert took to art as soon as he was able to hold a crayon, often doodling or drawing for hours. Throughout his childhood, he developed an appreciation for artistic expression and creativity, whether it was building with Lego Blocks, a bird house out of scrap wood, making contraptions with Erector Sets, designing Halloween costumes, or just drawing pictures. But it wasn’t until much later in adult life during a chance encounter that the artistic spark would be ignited.
After meeting an artist in the military Robert became obsessed with drawing, painting, and learning. Devouring books and practicing he soon began selling small portraits and landscape canvas’. What seemed like overnight the small portraits and occasional small projects turned into massive commercial and corporate jobs starting with South Florida Baptist Hospital; two 20 foot long murals in the new Pediatrics Ward and Emergency Room.
Then each subsequent project got bigger than the last. Now Tampa Murals, INC gets called routinely for projects in the thousands of square feet. Tampa Murals, INC has become the go to company for large corporate murals and huge logos for commercial and educational institutions.
Robert is now a professional artist full-time running Tampa Murals, INC and Tampa Mural Painter. Along with larger and larger projects the company has started to grow employing more artists and has expanded their reach to all corners of Florida. He lives in Riverview with his family who are also beginning to show signs of the artistic spark. Robert’s extensive mural art can be seen throughout Tampa Bay and central Florida.
