Meet the Owner and Lead Artist
My name is Niki Baker. My story starts in 2005 while finishing up my degree in Fine Art, I was asked to take a class in Faux Finishing to refinish a kitchen of a family member. I fell in love with the creative process and the rest is history. After raising my children and doing many projects through the years my passion turned to my profession. I love transforming my clients’ homes to bring their visions to life. Keeping up with current trends and continuing to learn new techniques through trendy classes keeps my work current and in high demand. I exclusively use high quality product that creates stunning finishes and can withstand the test of time. Get that rustic, hand finished look or the sleek high end finish you’ve been dreaming of.
