Specialist in authentic lime venetian plasters using traditional and decorative techniques
Born in Great Britain, into a family of tradesmen. Mike charted his own path by moving to the South west of France where he specialized in restoring 17th century homes and barns. Mike brought his love of lime plaster and masonry stucco with him to America, he is now applying these traditional European techniques to Venetian and decorative plastering across the Hudson valley.

Mike is a passionate artist. His decorative plastering is among the best I have seen, and as an interior designer, I have seen quite a bit. He is truly a perfectionist, concerned with the movement and finish of the plaster, and meticulous in its application. His goal is to create the best product he possibly can, and is a student as much as he is a master - researching new products like sealants and new techniques. It was a wonder to watch him work.
As a human being, he is a pleasure; kind and thoughtful, utterly trustworthy, honest. attentive, and listens to your thoughts and feelings on what you are looking for on the project. He will not be content until you, as a client, is happy.
I can’t wait to work with him again on our next fireplace. We are so blessed to have been referred to him! Hire him, and you will understand why.

If you have been thinking about updating a room in your home and are looking for something a little different than paint .. call Mike! I recently had him come and do our accent wall in the dinning room. I was looking for something that would really compliment our fireplace that was recently refaced and wow! We could not be happier with the Venetian Plaster Mike did for us. The look is unique yet classic .. exactly what we had hoped for.
Mike was professional from start to finish. He took the time to go over styles, colors and had samples of his very own work on-hand to show us. He laid out the time line of the project and kept to it. I could not recommend him more.
