I’ve worked since I was 15. Every job I’ve had, from my ﬁrst job as a sales clerk in the corner drugstore to the short stint I did as a telemarketing poller, (YES! I was one of those people but I was trying to earn money to go to France!), has been with people that I could talk to and ﬁnd out their story. Even then, I spent time on the phone getting to know the people I was calling. (I thought it was rude to just ask the questions – my bosses did not.)
Everywhere I worked, my favorite part was meeting new people and ﬁnding out their story. It still is but NOW I get to PAINT that story!
I am a decorative painter who likes to do new things and I’m not afraid to try something new and different. In me, you have an artist who can execute more creative ideas. I’d like you to view my mural and faux ﬁnish portfolio as a jumping off point. Every ﬁnish can be customized for colors, materials, and combinations of layers to create completely new looks.
In addition to my degree in Design Arts and work in Interior, Fashion and Set Design, I have taken classes to learn new faux ﬁnishes that not every other ﬁnisher offers. I enjoy getting to know you. Knowing and learning your stories allows me to make suggestions for customization and personalization.
After more than 25 years, I’ve heard many stories that have touched my art and my life. I have included portraits of family members and pets, and favorite places as pieces of those stories. I hope my murals are like a good book (my favorite pastime!) where you go back and revisit time after time.
How can I help tell your story?
