Default Excited to be here!

Hey there! Girl boss here, hustling away in Southern California.

I’m from a long line of artists and been painting as long as I can remember. Got serious about decorative (faux finish) painting in 2005, after spending my life in the midwest I moved to CA in 2008 & started my business in 2015.

After seeing acrylic plasters take over and true plaster artists that apprenticed in Europe retire and fade away I became obsessed with finding a mentor to learn the authentic old school techniques. After spending some time searching for an italian trained venetian plaster artist I was lucky enough to find one kind enough to take me under his wing in Florida! I’ve just returned home after training & am completly in love with it....

So, I’m working to develop my hand and hope to soon offer real Grassello & Marmorino to my area again 🙂

Excited to be apart of such an awesome group & bounce ideas and thoughts around with ya’ll!

I actually found my mentor to train under on Instagram! Its such a great medium to connect with others and yes, there are some VERY talented ventian plaster artists sharing their work- I love all the true lime plasters from marmarino to grasselo & everything in between. Thanx for saying hi!!
