Our Story

Welcome

“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”

 

Hello. My name is Calle.  I am a creative furniture painter and a Wise Owl Synthesis Paint retailer.

 

One day I discovered the amazing world of painted furniture.  It started with a few pieces to decorate our second home. I wanted to give it my personal touch and I figured that painting it myself would be both amazing and fun.  Before I knew it—– I was hooked.  It did not take long before I was painting for both friends and clients. A new chapter had been opened and an amazing adventure was underway.

 

I am passionate about painting.  I want to share my love with the world.  My hope is to inspire others to paint, dream, and create.   I am a Mom of two amazing adult children and a wife to a wonderful and very supportive husband.  When I am not painting you will find me enjoying my other love in the ice arena coaching competitive figure skating.

 

My everyday inspiration is finding forgotten treasures and giving them a new chance at life with paint, stain, and other embellishments.
