Master Artisans was established in 2000 with the goal of providing the finest quality painting, special finishes, and faux painting in St. Louis. We are a mixture of the old masters’ knowledge and modern techniques, providing custom embellishments for our clients’ homes and businesses.
Owner Jeff Baumgartner is a painter of over 38 years. Following in the footsteps of his father’s 45 years of experience, he began his career by serving a three year apprenticeship starting in 1973. By working with his father and a number of other very talented craftsmen, attending special finish classes, and working in different aspects of the painting trade, he has gained the knowledge and background necessary to problem solve and apply special finishes. Since taking faux finish classes, Jeff has come full circle to teach the very classes that helped to further his abilities.
An advantage of working with Master Artisans is dealing directly with the owner. Communication is much clearer when the owner is closely involved with your project. Jeff is a hands-on, working owner and is on all jobs to oversee their progress.
