Clearwater, FL – Scott J. Menaul ( has been commissioned to
create his unique and captivating abstract artwork to hang in the new landmark
condo/mixed-use complex, Signature Place, downtown St. Petersburg, FL. Signature
Place (features an innovative slim glass design that resembles a gossamer sail,
transforming St. Petersburg’s waterfront skyline in a most fitting way. Menaul’s
arresting artwork is an appropriate choice for the architectural artistry of Signature Place
as both seem to elicit similar responses from those who see them, helping to maintain
design continuity from the outside in.

Words like “intriguing”,”inspiring”, “awestruck”, and “touched me in a personal way”
have all been used to describe both Menaul’s artwork and the architecture of Signature
Place (
“We were looking for a Florida artist whose artwork would elicit an emotional response
on a par with the impressive design of Signature Place,” said Michele Jennings-Wiebe,
founder, and Principal Designer of Studio M, the interior designer for Signature Place.
“We were introduced to Scott J Menaul’s abstract artwork by Peter Lowes of Vista
Galleries. Menaul’s artwork is like air and crystal and light with a wonderful infusion of
colors that forwards the Signature Place design. I have always been intrigued with how
light, color, textures, and sound can influence a space and we strive to produce interiors
that enliven the senses. Menaul is a master in his use of light and color on giclée canvases
that pick up the surrounding elements, tying the décor together bringing life to the space.”
continued Michelle.

“I knew of Menaul’s artwork and it seemed a perfect fit for Signature Place,” said Peter
Lowes, co-founder of Vista Galleries, brought on board the Signature Place project by
Studio M. “Menaul offers a new approach to art and his work is technically advanced.
They were looking for artists whose use of color would create an equal impact on the
interior as the architecture did for the design of the building. They also needed someone
who could create intriguing original custom artwork to match their colors for a large
number of places. I knew Menaul could meet the challenge and never had a moment’s
worry working with him.” explains Lowes.
With 25 years as a commercial photographer and graphic designer, and 12 years working
with his medium, Scott J. Menaul has an individual style not seen elsewhere. His art
seems to uniquely utilize light to reflect through the pieces in a very captivating way. “I
love color, patterns and forms, that when combined together, take on a life of their own.
The artwork communicates to others and appears to touch them in a deep, personal and
spiritual way. It’s an honor to create the canvases for Signature Place,” says Scott J.
