About Us
The LANDMARK collaboration of artists Ed Pinson and Bob Burchman brings with it a wealth of experience, vision, talent and expertise in the areas of painted architectural ornament and mural design.
Ed Pinson has over thirty years of painting and design experience. His extensive knowledge of color and paint techniques comes from years of matching historic colors, finishes and styles for a variety of architectural restoration projects.  Pinson holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of California and has a background in architectural, graphic and theatrical design.
Bob Burchman has created one-of-a-kind painted environments for over 28 years.  His brilliant color work, faux finishes and murals can be found in homes throughout the Los Angeles area and in other areas of the country as well.  As a fine artist, Bob has worked in sculpture, as well as photorealistic drawing and painting.  His work has been shown in galleries since 1974.
