Introduction: I started in business as a graphic designer before transitioning into exhibition and interior design. When I quit - because I wanted to be doing something that was more "hands-on" - I explored working with wood, metal, ceramics and glass. When I began learning the basics of faux finishing from a master craftsman from England over 20 years ago, I quickly became hooked on the reaction of our customers to the way we transformed their homes. There's something exponentially satisfying about exceeding people's expectations. Customers often have an idea of what they want, sometimes they even have pictures as a guide, but when they see the completed result, the difference it makes to their home, they are quite often totally amazed. My background in commercial design, sets me apart from most other decorative artists. I spent years meeting deadlines and developing the discipline to harness my creativity to satisfy customers, and not impose my own preferences or muse, unless they were relevant. There are many artists to choose from, so I am always grateful to have another opportunity to do what I love for people who care about their homes. I have now been providing decorative painting services around the Valley for over twenty years and have been a Thumbtack "Top Pro" from the first year I joined. Although I began to draw the world around me before I reached kindergarten age, my fulfillment has always been in using my creative and technical abilities to help others. Whether as a designer, helping establish the public face of major companies, or as a muralist, faux finisher and decorative artist, bringing rooms to life and turning homes into whatever kind of castle their owners desire.

We absolutely LOVE the mural Doug did for us in our bathroom. I had always wanted the look of a window in our small windowless bathroom, and worked with Doug on exactly what I wanted the "scene" to look like. Not only did he get the outside of the window scene perfect, he made it look as if it were 3 dimensional! Everyone who comes over to visit is "forced" to visit that bathroom whether they want to or not because we must show it off. And they all LOVE it!! Doug was so easy to work with. I first presented him a picture of roughly what I wanted, but said I want this different, and that different, etc, etc, and he came back with his interpretation of what he thought I wanted. Then we continued to work in that manner via the internet until we thought we had it. The morning he came to do the actual painting, I made some last minute changes, and he was most accommodating. Even as he was painting it we were still working together as he made suggestions or I made suggestions to get it all perfect. I just wish I could post a picture here because it so wonderful.

We had some drywall changes to our walls with Venetian plaster and we hired Doug to match the paint (instead of re-doing the Venetian plaster). Doug matched the color perfectly and you can't even tell it isn't plaster. He is also a hard worker! I would highly recommend his work. TBannon

Doug has faux painted 2 entire houses for us with beautiful results. He is prompt & unobtrusive as he works and has helped us with ideas, colors & designs. We would never use anyone else & wholeheartedly recommend him without hesitation!

FAQs

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    When choosing a mural or faux finish artist, the only way to feel comfortable with your decision, if you don’t have a referral from someone you trust or you don’t know someone whose work you’ve actually seen and admire, is to compare your options. Do you like them; would you feel comfortable having them in your home; are they helpful; does their portfolio give you confidence in their abilities; do they take the time to understand what you’re trying to achieve – to address your concerns, to discuss possibilities and options? Choosing a mural or faux finish artist is personal. They’re going to be working in your home, possibly for some time, and unlike with many service providers, what they will be doing will be very visible and reflect on your taste and sense of style. Ultimately, while price can be an issue, there are other factors that determine value, and only you can decide which of these are important.
