Hello, I'm Doyle Self and I've teamed up with Misha Thibeaux last year to form a Decorative Arts company. One that not only offers incredible Venetian plasters and Decorative Arts, but now we've added murals, and Misha's artistry is truly amazing.
Back in the 70's I was very intrigued with Faux Finishing. The faux went well into the 90's. But our customers got educated as well as the artists. Many clients began desiring more high end finishing on the walls and ceilings.
Faux Schools started opening up around the country and the most talented people in the world were teaching their techniques. What a great time to be a decorative artist! I have flown around the USA and Italy, searching for techniques and products to produce wall, ceiling and cabinet finishes. I opened the School of Italian Plasters in the beginning of 2000. I did not just teach venetian plaster, but many decorative effects as well. For 10 years I taught over 5000 students in Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego and Italy. When the economy got slow, I decided it was a good time to start applying the Decorative Arts again, working personally with homeowners, designers, builders and architects.
Meeting Misha was the perfect combination, so we formed a creative alliance. This last year we both created some of our favorite finishes together. Elegant color washes that are cost effective, to the high end reflective venetian plasters.
Some of our best jobs started out with the client collecting pictures and sharing their vision. Out this creative brainstorming comes a one of a kind finish, created by not only by the artist but also the client. Not sure of what you want? We have many samples in our combined portfolio's to guide you in the right direction.
