Stubbornness and love of our craft kept us pursuing an improbable vocation and health concerns motivated our commitment to using only environmentally-friendly paint materials. When we started our company in the mid 80’s, we were recent School of the Museum of Fine Arts graduates and newlyweds. Ami and I were working on a faux marble project for two wooden columns. The process involved the use of oil paint, turpentine and water: a very noxious mix. We decided from then on we were parting from oil paints, thinners and toxic ingredients.
At that time, all of the “recipes” for faux finishing called for oil paint. There was no information on how to apply decorative finishes using low VOC water based paints so we developed our own systems, becoming pioneers in the use of acrylic house paints for this art form.
More than twenty years later, we remain never very far from a brush and paint. Our home and our business are housed in our ninety-five year-old New England farmhouse west of Boston.
The Arteriors’ team also includes an extremely talented and dedicated group of individuals who allow for projects to run smoothly and efficiently. Attention to detail, a strong work ethic, and artistic sensibility have all been important ingredients in making Arteriors a success. We love the applying all of these skills to create beautiful environments and we love working with you, our clients!
