Mona Lisa

MONA LISA DESIGNS began in 1992, twenty-five years ago and counting.
My sister, an accomplished artist and decorative painter, showed me her newly completed bathroom. Her walls were custom painted in a new and trending finish called “Faux.” I was astounded. “Oh my goodness! This is unbelievable and amazing!” I was hooked!
Driving four hours one way, I learned the art of Faux finishing from her. This was my passion and my future. Professional classes and certification under Faux Effects International (FEI) continued to advance me.
Since then, my work has been featured in ASID show houses, numerous private residences and businesses, and many publications.
