My Creative skills include Restoration, Murals, Trompe-L’oeil, Color Glazing/Wall Washing, Gilding, Venetian Plaster, Marbleizing, Woodgraining, Stenciling, Friezes, Antiquing, Distressing Etc.

On-site color mixing and matching is my specialty, as is touching up damage to many surfaces.

I have over 30 years experience in faux finishing, 8 years of formal art training and have been serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond since 1990.

I am a disciplined Artist and a good listener, with strength in the understanding of composition, color theory and design. I strive to create, enrich and embellish, the goal being to give the client the highest quality finish possible in whatever form, style, or budget.

Peta Sanderson Murals, Faux Painting and Restoration is San Francisco Bay Area based – as a seasoned traveler I am happy to travel anywhere for your project – Northern California and beyond.
