My painting in the NY Social Diary


About once a month a designer is featured in the Decorator Series in the New York Social Diary.

The July 2016 issue profiles Rod Winterrowd, a California-born, New York-based designer, whose clients are so private that he never discusses them on the internet. 

I have had the pleasure of doing various painting assignments for Rod. For his own apartment he commissioned me to do a large Rothko-inspired canvas, which is now prominently displayed in his living room.

A painting inspired by Rothko by decorative artist Yvonne Verwer hangs above the living room fireplace mantel. The limed Oak corner chair was designed by Rod and covered in a Lee Jofa fabric.

The article shows his exquisite apartment and discusses his life as Vice President at Disney before he turned 30, after which he took the plunge and started studying design at Parsons.
