I have been providing professional decorative finishes for residential and commercial clients throughout the United States since 1987. My work has appeared in Seattle Magazine, on KIRO television, and featured in Street Of Dreams.

Over 100,000 sq. ft. of artistic finishes completed, including projects in the greater Seattle area, Santa Barbara, Tucson, Austin, Dallas, Las Vegas, Olympia, Spokane, Portland, Ellensburg, Bend, Walla Walla, Bozeman, Boise, Bellingham, Maui, Memphis, Palm Springs, Anacortes, Boston, Wenatchee and Cape Cod.

Recently, I've completed a remodel in Santa Barbara with multiple finishes and techniques.

The second project in Hunts Point Washington was a 6200 Sq. Ft. home. All walls were finished with Venetian Plaster.




Since 1987 Joel Nilsen has provided architectural finishes and custom painting for commercial and residential clients throughout the United States.

Seattle Magazine - Oct. 02
"The finished work was so convincing that one of their grandchildren mistook
the two-dimensional scene for the real thing and briefly sported a serious goose egg."
