PROFILE

BIO

Erminio Iusi (1882-1943) was born in Cosenza, Italy, in the area shaped like a boot. The land was extremely difficult for farming, so he emigrated to America in 1905 to make a new life. Arriving by boat at Ellis Island, New York in 1905 at age 23, his wife Rosie and baby Mary must have jumped with joy to see dry land and the Statue of Liberty welcoming them! Imagine their excitement and mixed emotions at starting their new life far from home.

Ramon Yusi Sr. was born on July 9, 1912. He married Josephine Koztecki in 1936  and they had three children: Ramon Jr., Dennis, and Diane. Ramon was always a hard worker and dedicated himself to his family throughout his lifetime. His career as a sign maker saw the development of many artistic talents until his retirement in the early seventies, after which he made his most significant contributions as an artist and built his collection of oil-on-canvas portraits into the hundreds.

The Ramon Yusi Autobiography

Mr. Ramon Yusi Sr. was born on July 9, 1912. He married Josephine Koztecki in 1936  and they had three children: Ramon Jr., Dennis, and Diane. Ramon was always a hard worker and dedicated himself to his family throughout his lifetime. His career as a sign maker saw the development of many artistic talents until his retirement in the early seventies, after which he made his most significant contributions as an artist and built his collection of oil-on-canvas portraits into the hundreds.

His artistic development began quite early in life, as did the career with which it was inexorably intertwined. In spite of the hardships of the times, Ramon had talent on his side to aid in his quest for success. He was artistically gifted, but also a bright student with athletic ability. He received numerous awards during his career. The Port Chester Art Society selected one of Ramon's paintings for first prize and the Harrison's Women's Art Society deemed one of his pieces as first prize by popular vote. Commissions for portraits kept him quite occupied and constantly in demand.

Ramon Yusi's enduring legacy of starting something new and following through serves as a reminder of not only the things he accomplished, but also the values he lived by. He passed away on June 27, 1997, having completed over five hundred portraits since age sixty.

What they're saying

Jennifer P, Brentwood TN

"Lorem ipsum."

link

Jay L., Germantown Nashville TN

"I'm serious about aesthetics, quality and attention to detail. The Lux team delivered above and beyond on all counts. I honestly don't know how I've lived without these lights until now!"

Design Gods

Jane F, Belle Meade Nashville TN

"I was really caught in the middle. You know, I hated how my room looked so same old same old boring. But I was dreading all the work that goes into a remodel, especially finding workers who actually show up and do what they say they'll do. Sounds simple, but it's not. With Lux it is!"

Elastic Themes

Chris C., Green Hills Nashville TN

"My light art truly fills the entire room with spectacular color. Colors are bright and vibrant, filling up a dark room with pretty much every combination or hue you can think of. I especially like the scenes that have a "breathing" like effect, which just looks so pleasant in the background throughout the rooms in my home."
