During the past forty years, I have produced, paintings, murals functional art and sculpture for public spaces and private homes.  As a restorer, I saved a number of important works in historic buildings in New Orleans, where I once lived.  I have continually developed techniques that allow me to create art works that are not limited by traditional materials and that are uniquely appropriate to their settings.  I search for beauty and harmony, but my paintings also have a message for the viewer.

I began my career painting watercolor landscapes, but I also worked as a muralist.  Architectural elements were an important part of that work.  The large scale of the murals readily translated into the large canvases I now use.  Over the years, I had the opportunity to restore ecclesiastical art in a number of old churches in New Orleans.  This often involved research into religious symbolism.  Later, I was commissioned to do original artwork for churches and for synagogues.  This was a natural path for me, since in addition to my art studies, my formal education had centered primarily on the study of Philosophy and Ancient Greek Language.

One of my earliest solo exhibits dealt with Genesis and the Twelve Tribes of Israel.  It was a number of years though before these experiences solidified into a direction for me.  My interest in philosophy and metaphysics slowly found a voice in various works as I began experimenting along the way.  Watercolor gradually gave way to oils in my search for a certain timelessness to deal with where Man has been and where He is going.

It is hardly surprising that I pursued a career in art since I spent my earliest years working with my parents, who were both artists, and in the company of their friends who were also artists, designers, art collectors and patrons of the arts.  I grew up in New Orleans where the rich historical and cultural heritage of the city was an important part of my learning experience.

My mother, Vera, was from Hamburg, and was trained in the disciplines of design, fine arts and decorative arts.  She met my father, Charles Reinike, at art school in Chicago where he was completing his art studies.  They married, moved to my father’s native New Orleans, opened an art school, and began successful careers as artists.  The art school they opened in 1930 in the French Quarter eventually became Reinike Gallery and it continued in New Orleans until my wife and I moved it to Atlanta in March of 1988. Vera died in 1969 and Charles died fourteen years later.

I was born in New Orleans in 1947.  I was graduated from Louisiana State University in 1969 and received my degree in Philosophy with concentrations in Ancient Greek Language and Fine Art.  Upon graduation, I began to work with my father on large commissioned works, at first as an apprentice and later as a partner.  Over the past thirty years, I have developed my own style and symbols.  My works include paintings, pewter basrelief, pewter functional pieces, fired-enamel-on-copper, painted murals, fired-tile murals, serigraphs, and wood carvings.

In addition to commissioned work, I have produced eleven one-man exhibitions.

My wife, Edna, and I run the gallery where I also have a studio in the back. We have one daughter, Vera.
