Work With Me


If you’re in need of help with a custom home project, but don’t want to tackle it on your own, you’ve come to the right place! I have been working as a decorative artist for over 30 years and have completed many dramatic transformations to homes all over Illinois and beyond. See more of the work I do and fill out the form below to get started on a custom quote for your project.

Specializing In:

Custom Woodgrain

A wood door makes a great first impression, but real wood is not only expensive it’s also difficult to maintain. Let me take your fiberglass or steel door and turn it into the entrance you’ve been dreaming of.

Gel Stain

Knowing how to properly handle gel stain is something I’d consider to be one of my superpowers. It transforms your cabinets, doors, and furniture pieces into looking like they were on a showroom floor.

Faux Finish

Whether an accent wall, an inset, or something out of the ordinary (like an exterior dryer vent!), faux finishes are a fun way to add character or a feature to your space.

Cabinet & Furniture Painting

Following all of the proper steps in cabinet & furniture painting makes a world of difference. Let my years of professional experience help give your project a brand new custom look.


Murals personalize your home and space. Let’s put our heads together to give you the impact you’re looking for in your space. If you can dream it, I can paint it!

Limewash Brick & Stone

A whole different type of paint, limewash is a natural material that creates a unique look. I’ll use an artistic touch to get a consistent look for your transformation.
