I am a fully qualified painter and decorator with over 35 years experience in a variety of aspects in the decorating profession.
Having previously been a director of my own specialist decorating company – Faux Deco Ltd – and working as a college lecturer teaching decorating and interior design in numerous colleges in Kent, I have amassed the skills, expertise and business acumen to offer a highly professional service.
I have vast knowledge of the trade from selecting and applying heritage and period finishes and designing and producing specialist paint effects – such as marbling, wood-graining, distressing etc.
I am currently the President of The London Association of Master Decorators, which was formed in 1908 to celebrate and promote high quality decorating work and craftsmen. I am also a member of The Painting and Decorating Association and examples of my work have been featured in several editions of The Decorator magazine.
I am also very adept in hanging a wide range of wallcoverings in both domestic and contract widths.
I can also offer a bespoke art work on canvas, from a pastiche of an existing painting, to a modern impressionistic portrait or figurative piece.
My passion for the decorative painting trade hasn’t dwindled and I still get a great amount of pleasure and satisfaction from designing and creating a painted finish for a wall mural, canvas or item of furniture even after all these years.
If you are looking to simply have a room or staircase in your home freshened up with the walls and ceilings painted, or having a feature wall in a lounge wallpapered then I am more than happy to oblige.
Your existing kitchen units can be given a new lease of life by spray painting them or I can transform tired and dated looking furniture using the latest chalk paints and creating a shabby chic look.
For those who are more adventurous , I can design and create a mural to provide that wow factor in any room.
