I wanted a mural in my basement to complement an HO Gauge railroad layout. Brian understood exactly what I wanted and created a 360 degree mural on all four walls that is in the exact scale of the layout, and with such a degree of detail, it's unbelievable. I have an Atlanta skyline, an industrial quadrant, a farm scene, rural countryside with mountains, four season transitions, and a sunset! It is incredible how the layout flows onto the walls, thanks to Brian! I wish I had another project for him to do, as his work is extraordinary and he's a pleasure to have in my home.

My wife and I have remodeled just about every room in our home; the one remaining room on the first floor was our powder room. We wanted a contemporary, yet classic look. After interviewing Brain, we knew he was our artist. We showed Brian our copper-colored vessel sink and left the rest to him. From his choice of glazes to the copper-painted ceiling, Brian's work was perfect. Our guests are amazed at our powder room. We'd definitely use Brain again.

I had an idea, Brian met me to discuss the concept, called the next day with very reasonable pricing and to shore up the art, worked me into his schedule and was finished within 2 weeks of our initial meeting. A-maze-ing job. It is so beautifully executed. Perfect colors, perfect scale to the room. Spot on. He's the best in Atlanta. Looking for other places in my home to have him bring to life.

My husband is the CEO of a large IT consulting firm and is very involved in decorating our home...that said, he has let Brian take the lead with colors, design, decorative and faux finishes throughout our house...and we are both constantly thrilled with the results! Many guests have asked if some of the painting is wallpaper because they cannot believe that anyone can get the measurements/lines so precise. Besides the quality of the work being amazing, Brian is always very professional and a joy to have in our home. My husband and I both would give him/his work the highest recommendation!

Brian recently completed quite a bit of work on our home in 4 different rooms. He was a pleasure to work with and very fair in his pricing. He was very focused on us being happy with the work. He made suggestions, brought samples and photos, yet completely captured our vision with what we wanted done. He is truly a naturally talented artist. He was on time, professional, left no mess at all, easy to communicate with and paid attention to every detail. I would HIGHLY recommed him to anyone who wants work done in their home. Don't waste your time looking any further - it doesn't get any better than him.

I apologize. I hope you can forgive me... If I had shared this testimonial back in September when Brian did his brilliant work in my aunt's home, I perhaps could have saved you the time and effort (and maybe heartache if you went elsewhere) in determining whether or not he was the artist for your project. Brian granted my aunt's wish of having something special done in her foyer. All she knew was that she wanted a beloved prayer to be placed in the entryway, with some Tuscan-themed embellishment. She trusted me to find someone who could make her vision a reality. I found Brian online and boy, has he made me look good! Since Brian came and shared his immense talent, all my aunt has been receiving are "Oooohhh - 's" and "Ahhhhhh - 's" as guests have visited her home for her birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations, to her delight. Perhaps that could've been you over this holiday season if I had said something sooner - Again, I'm sorry. I really do feel bad about not getting around to it 'til today. My hope is that in sharing with you now that Brian is unequivocally the kindest, smartest, most creative, most professional, most financially reasonable, most punctual, most conscientious and most thorough artist that you'd ever want to entrust your home project to, perhaps you can resolve to secure him in 2012. A bright, fresh and brilliant home space for the new year. Rest assured, Brian can deliver and exceed your expectations!

Brian is a true artist who may even undervalue his work. He takes pride in his work and is exceptionally thoughtful in his approach. We have two difficult to please personalities and Brian met with us and found the perfect compromise. We love the colors he chose and his advice for the "vibe" we envisioned.

Brian recently completed some faux finishes in my basement. He faux finished a complex ceiling as well as an accent wall, two niches and window moldings. Many professionals that we had interviewed could not grasp what we were looking for and had an even harder time coming up with a modern finish. From the very start Brian communicated exceptionally well, really listening to what we wanted and coming up with ideas and techniques that were well explained. I have to say he exceeded all of our expectations. The work was completed in a timely manner with no mess being made. We have had many of our friends and family come over and comment on how amazing the faux finishes are. We would not hesitate in recommending Brian for your faux finishing needs. In fact we would tell you not to waste your time with other professionals and go to Brian right from the start.

Brian painted a Serengeti theme on our playroom walls. While I had a vision, what he created far exceeded anything I could have imagined. It is beautiful and more than I could have asked for. Brian was a joy to work with and hope to work with him again in the future.

Brian recently completed decorative finishes at our home including venetian plaster, woodwork and the mantel of our fireplace. The craftmanship is outstanding and working with Brian is a pleasure.

Brian's work is superb. I highly recommend him for his ability to capture dimension and color. I found him using Kudzu and I am so glad I did. His experience shows and he will do a great job. He also effectively communicated with me throughout to ensure that it was exactly what I wanted. If you need someone for a mural or artwork in your home, Brian will not disappoint!

I tell you, Brian is just amazing. We had a new front porch added on to our house. The front porch alone added on so much, but there was something still missing. Our front door and panels were just drab white. We needed this door to pull the whole front of the house together and to make it all pop. Brian was recommended to us as someone who can do some great work with faux finishes. Before we talked about a whole new door, we thought we'd consult him. He recommended a faux wood finish with a mahogany color to it. He would not only do the doors, but the panels flanking the door. I honestly could not imagine him being able to paint a door to look like real wood, but he did show us a sample which helped convince us. The end result was simply unbelievable. I couldn't have imagined our front door looking any better. It really looks like real wood. While we typically do not share this information with everyone, our close friends do know and they are just wowed. I'm so proud to drive up to our house these days. Everything is beautiful and the door pulls it all together! Thanks Brian!

After seeing some of this artist's work at a friend's house, I decided to have some decorative/faux finishes done in my home. I was blown away with the results. Brian did an amazing venetian plaster on the walls in one room. I was worried about having the walls look "dirty" but Brian understood I was looking for a high-end look and delivered on this. It really gave the room an elegance. He helped me pick a color which complemented the room's furnishings. Everyone who sees the room is wowed by the job he did. Impressed with the living room, I decided to have him take a stab at another room. I wanted to add some flair to our boring basement rec room but I wasn't sure what would work well. He talked me through a few options and showed me some of the work he's done in previous jobs to give me some ideas. We decided on a harlequin design on one wall to make it a feature wall in the room. The harlequin, a group of diamond shapes painted different colors, really gave the wall that pop it needed. The colors he helped me choose again, worked well with the colors in the room. All the diamonds were identical in size, totally symmetric, and laid out so that none were cut off unevenly. I'm sure that didn't just happen.....it must have taken some planning. Brian delivered and exceeded my expectations ten fold. His artistic talent, professional attitude and ability to help me hone in on what finish is best suited to my needs and decor all leave me a satisfied customer.
