ABOUT

David H. Reuss

I am proud to be a native New Yorker. I was born and raised in Staten Island, NY.  I’ve been an award winning artist member of the Salmagundi Club since 1997. I am also the instructor at the Saturday morning class at the Salmagundi Club where I teach painting and drawing.

I am an Executive member of the Society of Illustrators where I serve as the Membership Chairman and the Treasurer. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts and a Master of Professional Studies from Pratt Institute in Arts and Cultural Management.

With over twenty years experience in illustration and fine art my work encompasses an array of subjects, mediums and clients. For inquiries about sales, commissions, or illustration work please contact me either by phone or e-mail.
