Gretchen Peterson Johnston has been creating beautiful faux finishes, artwork, and fine interior painting professionally since 1996.  A resident of historic Georgetown since 1965, Gretchen's projects range from retail and commercial establishments to beautiful custom homes in the greater Austin area.  She has a liberal arts background and has traveled extensively in Europe, viewing not only great works of art, but also the incredible trompe l'oeil finishes in much of the architecture.  Gretchen has produced many fine art pieces, including commissions for clients.

"When I meet with my clients, I find out their dream for a living space and then help them to visualize it.  I look at existing artwork, fabrics, and furniture in the home and make suggestions for wall treatments to support the client's taste and lifestyle.  The walls should never overpower the rest of the space.  I know I've done my job well when the clients can't remember what the room looked like before I painted - that shows that my work has become an integral part of their home."

As a more recent addition to her services, Gretchen is a certified Time-Space Feng Shui Consultant through the Feng Shui Research Center.

Gretchen is the mother of two teenage sons, who now often help her with jobs.
