Carrie Cartier, MFA

Cartier Fine Finishes is a new San Francisco based company dedicated to bringing the traditions of the European inspired decorative arts into the homes and businesses of our clients.

Carrie Cartier has a background in theatrical design and painting with a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Arkansas. She has done work in local theaters such as the Marin Theater Company and A.C.T.

She has worked professionally as a decorative painter here in San Francisco since 2003. Challenged to learn the old world techniques for the decorative arts along with a new language, Carrie spent 9 months in France where she gained her Diplome de Peintre en Decors from IPEDEC, Institut Superieur de Peinture Decorative de Paris, in July of 2007. Carrie has returned to the Bay Area with a greater appreciation for the beauty and richness of decorative painting: including faux marble, faux wood, trompe l'oeil, glazing, gilding, and decorative finishes for furniture and cabinetry.

Please contact Cartier Fine Finishes for a free consultation. Projects are tailored specifically to the style and needs of each client.
