Curtis Robertson has always had a special affinity for New York City. Soon after being awarded a B.A. in Art from Centenary College of Louisiana in 1986, the Louisiana native made his move, telling people that he "defected from the Confederacy for artistic freedom and political asylum". Since then, he has devoted much of his time to enhancing his clients' living spaces with decorative painting treatments, murals, custom picture framing and other related enhancements.

Based on the inclusion of his work in the book Apartment Therapy Presents Real Homes, Real People, Hundreds of Real Design Solutions (2008, Chronicle Books), Curtis was among three New York designers chosen to create a studio apartment vignette for the window of Bloomingdale's flagship store on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. The vignettes were a tie-in for the store's January 2009 re-launch of the noted "Furniture on 5" store-within-a store. Curtis' design, entitled "Bridget's Bridge", included a full-wall mural based on a vintage 1948 paint-by-number painting, a unique approach that has become one of his specialties.
