Please allow us to introduce our company to you. We are Nancy Pittard and Quinn Woodward with Liberal Arts. We have been painting together since 2001. We are licensed and insured.
Nancy studied art and business at Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield . She worked professionally in a variety of art forms ranging from stain glass to jewelry making. She started her career in faux finishing in 2001. Extensive training provided her with skill development and product knowledge not available to the general public. It gave her the confidence to start her own business as a professional artist. Her industry experience expanded her portfolio with a broad spectrum of aesthetic textures, allowing her to offer clients an array of unique and dazzling finishes. Her continuous studying in this exciting industry helps the business flourish and have the ability to offer customers the top of the line products and differentiate her portfolio from the competition. She plans on staying in business for years to come and will continually aspire toward the acquisition of knowledge and the development of artistic skill.
Quinn attended Atlanta College of Art, where she received a BFA in painting. In the professional world, Quinn worked for a company that built and painted theatrical props and backdrops. This was her first exposure to the art of faux finishing and murals. Because of the dramatic nature, these finishes and murals were exaggerated and impermanent. In order to translate these skills to permanent structures, such as private homes and public buildings, she attended Sarasota School of Decorative Arts. There she took a variety of classes such as Designer Walls, Trompe l’oeil Murals, and The Business of Decorative Finishes. These classes gave her the confidence, artistic skills, and technical education to build a portfolio and begin a career in this new artistic endeavor. She furthered her education at Faux Effects Studio, learning about products such as Venetian Plasters and Luster Stone. She continues to attend classes as often as possible to be on top of this creative environment called "Decorative Painting"
