When and how did your business get started? After years of working in stage scenery design and for a kitchen design company, I decided to start my own business doing murals, faux finish painting, cabinet refinishing and other home design and remodeling consultation and work.

What is your business best known for?
 My business is based mostly on murals, theme rooms, and faux finishes for schools, homes and businesses, but many of my commissions have also included other more traditional painting jobs to finish out personalizing those homes and businesses. I've also done quite a bit of furniture and cabinet refinishing as customers have realized that they can economize a lot on their overall project by re-utilizing and re-inventing some perfectly good items they already have rather than buying new.

Does your business offer a special deals card or program? I offer competitive prices and can work with a client's budgets to find the best solution for their needs. I also offer bonuses for referrals.

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know? Through my involvement with volunteering at Habitat for Humanity home building projects, I teamed up with a group from our church and recently completed a fantasy room for foster children to meet with their parents in at the Elgin DCFS office where we had our team create beautiful soft goods, and furniture and I painted the furniture and murals on the walls to make a welcoming spot for their visitations.

Why did you choose Palatine to open your business? Many of my customers were from the North and Northwest suburbs of Chicago and since I would receive many referrals from them in the same areas, we decided to move closer to the area from my previous location in Jefferson Park.
