WallArt was the decorative painting business of Anne Gerdes in Seattle, Washington.
I am no longer offering these services, but have the site here for inspiration for others.


I painted interiors and furniture for fifteen years in styles ranging from classical to whimsical. I have moved on to other creative outlets (primarily web design), and am no longer painting as a business. Hopefully my gallery and frequently asked questions will help you try your own hand at decorative painting.
