About The Artist

Best Faux Finisher and Decorative Painter Serving the St. Louis, Missouri Area

Julie Dale earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Trinity University and completed a 2 year professional apprenticeship at the Dallas Theater Center.

After graduating she freelanced, performed, and designed at Theatre 3 in Dallas, TX, Bill Feagan Attractions, and Missouri Theatre Ensemble, among others. Julie also designed in-ground gunite swimming pools for Blue Haven Pools in Dallas.

Julie's theatre background and design experience served as an excellent springboard to starting her own decorative painting business. She has trained professionally with American and European decorative artists and continues to further her decorative arts education several times per year. Her continuing education is invaluable to her and to her clients and enables Julie to offer some of the finest and most durable finishes through the use of proprietary professional products. Many of her finishes can be produced for exterior use as well.

As an accomplished artist, Julie has participated in and completed numerous projects of varying sizes both in the St. Louis area and out of state including Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Texas. She has also completed high profile projects including:

  • The Creation Museum in the Cincinnati, Ohio area
  • A Platinum level project in Vail, Colorado
  • Several trips to Dallas to work with clients contracting fine Italian plasters

She is a member of The Faux Divas, an exclusive invitational group honoring women decorative artists for their knowledge, skill, and creativity in the industry. Julie is fully insured and happy to share her extensive portfolio with potential clients.

"It’s like living in a masterpiece…a masterpiece of color, texture and imagination. There is a big difference in quality out there. I think Julie’s education; she holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree and classical training brings a different level of sophistication to her faux finishes, decorative painting, and plaster finishes. I would absolutely recommend her…and have! All you have to do is imagine. Julie does the rest. She is a true master."
