I am a professional decorative painter specializing in trompe l’oeil  and fine art murals. My educational background is in interior design. I have studied and received my specialized training in decorative arts from Paris.

I began my career in 1995 in Lebanon then moved to Paris, and ultimately to Los Angeles.  My artistic creations can be seen in elegant homes, hotels, and businesses throughout Paris, Lebanon, Jordan and California. In Paris, I worked on Hotel George V Paris, Hotel Elise Matingnon, Le Chateux d’Etoges, and many other establishments.

In 2002, I established my own business, L’Artist, in Los Angeles.  My work is particularly enjoyed in homes and businesses throughout Southern California.  Clienteles vary from interior designers, architects, design firms, contractors, home and business owners. My artistic services include: murals, faux finishes, decorative plasters, frescoes, and furniture hand paintings. Some of my work has been published in This Old House magazine, and was featured in The Pasadena Showcase House of Design for several years.

Most of my Mediterranean and European influences in art come from my past experiences in Lebanon and Paris, which will always leave a lasting impression on my work, and is sure to satisfy a broad range of clientele with differing tastes and styles.
