About Us


A BRIEF HISTORY

Paramour Fine Arts was founded in the late 1970's by Ed and Karen Ogul as a natural progression of their mutual interest in 20th century art. Ed Ogul has a background in education having served as a teacher and administrator in the Detroit Public Schools for over 30 years as well as an instructor at Wayne State University. He is now retired from education and devotes full time to this endeavor. Karen is a retired neo-natal intensive care registered nurse. Paramour Fine Arts is a member in good standing of the IFPDA (International Fine Print Dealers Association). Paramour Fine Arts maintains a large inventory of art work, much of which may not be listed on this site. Inquiries are invited and always welcome.
