Gina Smith – Faux Painter

I used to be a professional dog groomer and had my own grooming salon for 18 years. After conquering the pups, I decided to do this Faux thing. It was quite the change from pups to paint but it worked.

I trained under Wanda Timons from designer finishes in Warensburg, Illinois for three years and learned the beauty and contrast of handcrafted wall finishes. My training was an essential part of who I am today. I have also taken classes from the top instructors of our industry. Gary Lord from Prismatic Painting, Cincinnati OH is world renowned and has written many books and I am glad to call him my Lord. Barb Skevington also opened my eyes to the world of refinishing furniture and cabinets.

I love to paint and create. I have teamed up with Georgia King, King Decorating. She has been in the field for over 40 years. She has taught me many things from hanging fabrics to hanging Wallpaper. I would rather take the paper down and do a Faux finish any day.

I am now servicing Arizona because this is where I was born and raised. Got to love the desert!

I can create it… Faux Fection provides unique faux ideas:

  • Venetian Plaster Finishes
  • Gilding, Textures, Glazing, and Marbles
  • Cabinets, Furniture, and Fireplace Finishes
  • Stone or Brick Finishes

My portfolio is extensive and training for the past years exquisite! Enjoy my gallery and samples. If you can dream it, I can create it!
