An example of fine art by Pete Quaid

I slipped into the world of art through the back door.  As a young man, it was fascinating to me to watch billboard painters.  I met an accomplished artist who painted pictorials on billboards and continued to ask for a job  until he hired me. 
Several years later, I started my own business contracting the painting of billboards. After gathering some years of experience, I signed a contract with a local company and painted their pictorial work in a studio environment for eight years.  What an opportunity to refine painting skills!  With the advent of large printers, I chose to transfer my skills to painted murals.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to work for PepsiCo, GE, Southwest Airlines, Landry’s (Saltgrass, Rainforest), Simon Properties and many schools and restaurants.   I feel fortunate that I’ve been able to support myself with a paintbrush for over 30 years. 
I now reside in Collin county with my wife, Laurinda.  Hobbies include cooking and beekeeping.
