True European craftsmanship 

Joerg (pronounced "yorg") is a professional painter with over 25 years experience. He studied painting for three years at the Clausthal-Zellerfeld School of Painting where he learned the craft through the tradition passed down over the centuries from Germany's masters. He received his degree in "Maler und Lackierer" in 1988.

He began his career refinishing historical buildings in Goslar, Germany, which is recognized as a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site for its 1,000-year history. He soon expanded into residential and commercial painting where he quickly became one of the Harz Mountain region's most skilled painters. He specialized in residential faux and straight painting, which brought him to the United States.
