"I am a Southern Vermont based decorative designer and painter who has brought all my background and training to the art of architectural surface design. I earned an MFA in theatre design while studying architectural history and interior design at the University of Massachussetts in Amherst. Joan Peters, architectural surface designer
Joan Peters, architectural surface designer As a decorative painter, I seek to enliven architecture through color, painted textures, patterns and forms. I am fascinated with the effects of light upon color. I work in a combination of freehand painting and stencilled forms. I feel the results to be aesthetically lively yet sufficiently mannered to not overpower space.

misc. works I develop color schemes and design and paint murals, ceilings and floors. I envision my own designs or interpret historical patterns, depending on the requirements of the project. I am very knowlegeable in color glazing and a variety of paint finishes.

I work in the New England region, collaborating with architects, interior decorators and home and business owners to business owners to arrive at concepts for surface design. I generally work from a combination of consultations, architectural elevations, on-site photographs and color swatches in order to develop designs.

I most often present architectural renderings and samples of proposed designs together with with cost estimates and projected time frames for the clients approval prior to embarking upon a project. I generally favor doing as much work as possible in my own studio in preparation for a project in order to expedite its completion on site. I am accustomed to working with deadlines and construction and renovation deadlines."
