"What an amazing finish! Corwin’s latest project for me is by far my favorite! My dining room is both bold and elegant. As always he was thorough, professional, and tidy. There is nothing this man can’t do with paint and finish... a true artist."Lindsay Keyes, Kokomo
"I had the pleasure of collaborating with Corwin on a painted finish design for my powder bath this year. The results are extraordinarily beautiful and the process involved in getting there was delightful. Corwin took the time to meet with me and to discuss the space and brought a multitude of options on large size canvases. He was as concerned as I was that we select a finish that fit into my vision and the overall design of our home. We not only discussed the design, but he gave me lots of options on the color palettes that could be used.
Having Corwin in our home to complete the work was so easy. He arrived and left each day with little fanfare and was very diligent about cleaning up at the end of the day. He gave me a proposed time schedule at the beginning of the job and updated me daily on his progress. He was spot on on timing!
The finished space is truly a work of art by a very talented artist. The attention to detail and the care that he showed in doing the work and caring for our home was amazing and we so feel so fortunate to have his work in our home. We look forward to having him transform another space in our home in the near future!

“In the process of building our dream home, we interviewed several artists about faux painting. Corwin was by far the most organized and professional of everyone we talked to. While all of them came with experience and high recommendations Corwin's attention to detail and responsiveness is the reason we chose him. He certainly did not disappoint! The work he did for us was extensive and included ceiling treatments, columns, a range hood, walls and light plates. Not only was Corwin very clean (some of his work was completed after we moved in) but he showed up each day as scheduled and was pleasant to be around. Everyone that walks in our home mentions the amazing detail of our faux painting. The ceilings are dramatic and the columns look like real marble! We couldn't be any happier with his work and would recommend him highly without reservation!” “We are very, very happy with your work!”
We have had the pleasure of enlisting Corwin's artist talents on several projects in our home. The first project was our kitchen in 2012 where he did a wonderful job creating a faux finish in an old world design. After several years, the walls still looks as vibrant as the day he created the original faux finish. Corwin is not only gifted with his artist abilities, but he is extremely organized, thorough, and extremely detail orientated. Our most recent project was in November 2017 for a master bathroom remodel. He worked very closely with us to ensure the correct color pallets were selected. The faux metallic finish he created on our walls is absolutely what we had envisioned. He can take ideas and transform the walls into works of art. He is extremely neat in the set up and clean up activity. We never had to clean up anything after he completed the work each day. He is very punctual which we greatly appreciated. We had a texture ceiling issue that the bathroom contractor did not do a good job matching the existing ceiling. We had to enlist Corwin's help in this separate project as well. He did a fabulous job recreating similar texture so it blended well with the rest of the room. Corwin is honest, talented, and treats your project as if it were his own.

“Thank you for taking the time to work with us on creating something beautiful for our home. We value your creativity, and appreciate your desire to serve God and others with your artistic expression.” “..[this finish] is exactly what we were wanting.”
“Dear Corwin, the door (cherry wood grained metal door) is truly extraordinary and ‘spot on’ with the actual cherry-veneered doors installed throughout the condo. Everyone has been totally amazed at your painting prowess, your high level of job perfection and your attention to detail. I am so glad that I was able to get you involved with this project. Though the door presented a myriad of challenges you ultimately rose above them and delivered something of rare quality. Thank you again for being such an important part of the H design “team”. I look forward to working with you again on future projects.” Chip Kalleen, ASID, Kalleen & Company.” Chip, referring to the door in the Indianapolis publication of Sophisticated Living Jul-Aug (pg 70-81), “Mother nature would be envious of its beauty.”
Repainting our bland rooms into dramatically beautiful spaces was super easy, thanks to Corwin and The Painted Finish & Image. He took all the guess work out of it and created beautiful options for someone who is not artistically inclined. He is a meticulous, detailed, and clean artist that will leave your room looking beautiful. He was timely, efficient, and affordable. We are very pleased. Thank you Corwin! We will definitely be calling again!

“Jean and I talked at length last night about you, your work, and our blessing in having you in our lives, in our home, and in our newly painted interior. We are incredibly grateful for you!”
“I highly recommend Corwin and his work. My wife and I are very pleased with the mural he painted for our dining room. The mural surpassed all our expectations. We have had many positive comments from family and friends. I would without a doubt commission him for any future projects that we might consider.”

“The mural is fantastic and is the topic of conversation with each guest that visits our home. The [additional] faux finish is gorgeous and well worth it. Corwin is able to make something look so real you can’t believe it is painted. His whole manner of working is clean, neat, and meticulous. Corwin is a very patient and considerate person to work with. We highly recommend him for any mural and decorative painting. He is exceptionally creative and highly skilled. When the opportunity presents itself we will hire him again.”
