Introduction: I’m an artist, predominantly a painter, working in the Decorative Arts for over 18 years. I have a lifetime in the arts with a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in painting and a minor in Spanish, which is helpful in this industry. I work with a multitude of materials such as concrete, plasters, patinas, gold and silver leaf, and many types of paints. I utilize what is the most appropriate combination to create what is best for each client’s project. With every project preparation is key for each surface for longevity as well as protective finishes in the space. I offer a variety of finishes for walls, ceilings, and other architectural elements, interior and exterior with an emphasis on eco conscious paints and plasters for many of my projects. I’ve completed some murals over the years and would like to expand on this. With that being said please note there aren’t many examples shown that I feel best exemplify what people want. I offer commissioned artwork as well. I’ve worked with residential and commercial clients directly, designers, design build firms, architects, builders, collaborations with other artists, custom homes, new construction, and all phases of renovation. This experience offers potential clients the knowledge it requires to be able to provide a more accurate bid and estimated time frame of completion. The years of experience, technical and artistic capabilities are expansive and still unfolding. I still create my own artwork and look forward to creating special spaces for home and business owners. Customer service and communication is important to me. Thank you for your support of local artists and small business. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my amazing clients and associates.

Krista Shiner did an outstanding job on a concrete finish for my home. Although, based on her previous work, I was confident that Krista would do fine job, she went above and beyond to transform a jenky substrate into pure surface perfection. Her attention to detail is a rarity and speaks to both her deep knowledge of materials, and her sensibilities as a true artist.

I highly recommend Krista Shiner-she is a true master of faux finishing! I appreciated her professionalism and creativity not to mention my fireplace looks amazing! And her murals and fine artwork are so unique and full of life. Whether it's a custom painting on canvas, decorative touches or a full-on cabinet treatment, her skills will amaze you. Thanks again, Krista!

Krista was referred to me by a local painting company. I have a stone (faux stone) fireplace in my townhouse that I wanted to change the look of, make look more neutral and natural. Since Krista had experience with decorative concrete & painting, she was the right person for the job ! My fireplace look fresh, natural & modern instead of the outdated look it once had.

I hired Krista to help me pick out paint colors for each of the rooms in my house. She asked good questions and she really listened to me to understand my style. She walked through each room with me and not only recommended a color but also made suggestions about other aspects of the room whether it was layout or accessories to achieve the final look that I wanted. I felt like she went above and beyond and I would not only recommend her but I would hire her again too!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It is important to note that costs take into consideration the overall cost of living and necessary business overhead. I may not be the cheapest however to be a legitimate company fully insured, licensed with the state, and having a website, assistance etc requires a bottom line cost for business mobility. As I have over 18 years hands on experience in the decorative arts I am very knowledgeable and efficient.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I gather as much information via phone and email including pictures to provide a potential client an estimate to see if it is within their budget etc. From there we schedule an on site consultation with samples as visual references and create a formal bid for approval. Custom samples can be created and typically are for each project. A working contract outlining the scope of work is created between the client and I. Payment terms are typically 50% deposit to schedule the project and purchase necessary materials unless it is a larger more complex project. If a client should decide not to move forward with the project they are then billed for the custom created samples and associated design / consult time.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in painting and a minor in Spanish. I have been involved in numerous facets of the arts throughout my life. I have mentored with two other artists the first 5 1/2 Years in addition to subcontracting to other artists before beginning my own company. I have also taken training classes specifically for decorative paint and plaster finishes, decorative concrete, counter tops, floors here in Colorado and California.
