The D’Arcy’s Studio of Kalamazoo, MI was perhaps the premiere decorating studio in Michigan, as well as the very best in the Midwest outside of the great Chicago Studios, such as Pickard, Donath, Brauer, Osborne, and Stouffer. D’Arcy’s Studio started their decorating business in the early 1900’s and had an array of great Artist, including several from Pickard Studio of Chicago. Artist such as Leon, John Schindler, and Louis Groskopf and Dominick Campana [Camp] produced wonderful floral creations that rivaled Chicago’s very best.

Dominick Campana was born in Venice, Italy graduating from the School of Fine Arts. On emigrating to the U.S. he landed a job at the Ceramic Art Co. of Trenton, N.J. from 1899--1901. He then migrated to Chicago and starting decorating for the Pickard Studio in 1902--03. Few of his pieces have shown up while at Pickard......with the exception of his rare "Lion" Plaques & Trays. In 1903 Campana opened a Studio & Art School in the Auditorium Building. Campana became well known in the Artist circles and even taught at the Chicago Art Institute. By 1914 Campana had gone into the Art Supply business and even wrote instructional books on many art subjects. It is unknown when he professionally decorated for D'Arcy's Studio.
