My name is Chuck Gridley and I have over 32 years of experience in classic and modern faux painting styles. Starting in Philadelphia in 1982 I worked for the next ten years with some of the finest artists in the industry on a wide ranging variety of projects.
Since then we have been based in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of New York State in historic Skaneateles. As our clientele hail from all over North America, we go where our clients need us. Our projects range from large commercial projects in NYC and Dallas to Great Camps in the Adirondacks. We have worked in fine Casinos in the East Coast as well as Kansas City, NYC and West Palm Beach. We work with contractors, interior designers, furniture and cabinet makers, architects, home owners, and painting contractors.
We do not offer a static menu of finishes; rather, we pride ourselves in approaching each job with a fresh perspective. We are skilled in a wide variety of techniques including Woodgraining, Distressing Trompe-L’oeil, Color Glazing, Marbleizing, Wall Washing, Gilding, Stippling, Combing, Graphics, Venetian Plaster, Woodgraining, Stenciling, Murals, Ragging Off, Friezes, Antiquing, etc. Simply put, however, skills are not everything. The thing that separates us from other decorative painters is our ability to combine these finishes and designs into a design that will enhance the architecture of a space and create the kind of environment our client’s desire and deserve.
We are skilled artists that will convey your dreams into reality. We will take the time to discuss your goals and ideas with you and develop a plan to work within your budget. Cross trained in both traditional and modern techniques we can offer you a wide variety of options, combining form, style, materials, and techniques. Much of our work comes from repeat customers who have come to appreciate our attention to detail. Simply put “We do the job right and on time”.
