Paint Talks Episode 163 with Lisa Worley

Mar 21, 2024

Dionne Woods talks with Lisa Worley on the Paint Talks Podcast. Lisa was born in upstate New York. Growing up, her mother was an interior designer and Faux finisher and Lisa would go to job sites with her and help her while getting hands-on experience. That’s where her passion for art and interior design began.

Lisa has been a Master Faux Finisher for over 25 years. She studied abroad throughout Italy to learn the old master’s techniques of a decorative faux finish. Lisa also studied the art of finishing with several well-respected artists in the industry from Gary Lord to Martin Allen Hirsch.

In the late 90s, Lisa became a distributor and instructor for Faux Effects International and taught classes at her studio. A couple of years later, she went to a local college and studied interior design. One of her favorite things she learned in interior design was the theory of color. That made all the difference in the world for her. It opened her eyes to the endless possibilities of color combinations.

Lisa’s business is very labor intensive. At 53, climbing on scaffolding and ladders over the years is starting to take a toll on certain parts of her body, but has inspired her to reinvent herself and her business.
