"If you are out to describe truth, leave elegance to the tailor"- and I say, 'to the artist as well'

'We built our dream home and Crystal did fabulous finishes in our great room, dining room and bathroom. Eighteen months later we had a house fire and had to start over. Crystal was first on our list of those we wanted a second time. Crystal is a true artist, very responsible and caring. We would highly recommend her to everyone.'

'Crystal is so talented ! She finished bathroom cabinets for me, and the walls she painted in my kitchen are amazing! The texture on the walls is so incredible that people have to touch it to believe it's paint. The colors are beautiful and the design is one-of-a- kind. The cabinets she toned have a rich look, they are so elegant.
I met Crystal through my designer and it's truly been a pleasure getting to know her!
Her work is exceptional.'
'Crystal is an extremely talented artist and the quality of her work is superior. Crystal is professional in all aspects and a joy to work with. I have recommended her to many people and will continue to do so.'

Decorative Painting and Surface Design
This is where my creativity blossomed almost 23 years ago. The luster, and inquisitive beauty of decorative finishing took me on an incredible journey. I wanted to learn everything I could about faux finishing. I traveled to Charlotte, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Florida to learn and took several classes while training in the field with highly skilled, creative finishers. Although I don't do large finishing projects like I used to, I am still commissioned to do smaller spaces built in furniture, architectural, detailed elements and touch up. I wanted to share with you a little of my background, a few of my favorite's and the joy and journey in decorative painting, and faux finishing.
'After seeing Crystal's work on-line we contacted her about working on our entrance hall. She understood what we were trying to achieve and gave us several wonderful proposals. She completely transformed the room in four days, even bringing another artist in to help with the ceiling medallion. We are more than pleased with the result and hope to have her do more work in the near future'.
'Crystal is an amazing artist and lovely person. I bought a piece of her art at an interiors shop and commissioned her to do a complimentary piece for me. She had the new piece finished within a few weeks and it is just as spectacular as the first. Her art has transformed my dining room in ways I never thought possible, and I am truly privileged to have her art grace my home.'

She is a true artist and I have always been pleased with her work. Everyone that sees her work is always impressed with the beauty and detail. She's simply the best.'
'Crystal is an amazing artist! She turned our mantle into a masterpiece, our master bath into a work of art, our furniture into a pure elegance and out bookcase into a showpiece. She is absolutely a joy to work with and will not leave a job until your are 100% satisfied. I would highly recommend her for any upcoming project you may have. She's the best!!!'
Design Elements and Art
Here is an example of many different design elements working together. Faux Bois Door in rich mahogany tones. Faux black marble mantle, both finished over white painted wood. Wall surface created in a strie silk like finish with a metallic overall shimmer. This finish was accented in blue/black at moldings, baseboards and framed the doors.
