Eric the Tribute Artist

Faux finishing is a term used to describe decorative paint finishes that replicate the appearance of materials such as marble, wood or stone. Eric prefers to refer to himself as more of a tribute artist.

"I have so much respect for the beauty and magic of nature, my job is to with respect, integrity and good craftsmanship, create the best tribute in the likeness of these amazing children of mother nature, be it wood, marble, or exotic jewel stones like, opal, malachite, lapis, etc.," Eric says. "I like to consider I am paying tribute rather than impersonating these elements of nature, for no one can compete with Mother Nature!”
