    Robert Whiteside: Robert Whiteside was an American born artist whose talents knew no bounds. A trained musician, painter, sculptor, acclaimed chef, pilot, gifted jeweler and businessman; he is perhaps most well known for his re-creations of Fabergé eggs. His art has been showcased and collected worldwide, including works granted as Gifts of State during the Reagan Administration. In 1995, Robert Whiteside moved his Dallas based studio to East Texas where he had purchased a farm, which he later turned into a Bed and Breakfast called the Veranda. Robert Whiteside was not only an artist, but a humanitarian. He participated in community awareness support and services, set up a music foundation, contributed to AIDS fundraisers, and donated his talents to the Crystal Charity Ball in 1987, creating a Fabergé-inspired table setting in conjunction with Gump’s. His life was cut tragically short on October 30, 2006 when he was murdered by a former employee.
