From my earliest memory, I have been compelled to create and to work with my hands. Nine years ago, I was fortunate to cross paths with a tremendously talented artist, Steve McKnelly. I served as Steve’s apprentice for six years and with his guidance, discovered my passion and gift for decorative painting.

I founded Stephen Floyd Design in 2011 to create one-of-a-kind finishes on walls, ceilings, floors and furniture, as well as commissioned artwork. With each new day and each new project I am challenged to see fresh possibilities and develop innovative techniques and approaches.

My painting style is subtle and delicate, in contrast with traditional faux finishing. My philosophy is one of planned randomness, utilizing understated changes of color, texture and depth so that every design is unique and customized.

I have had the privilege of working with amazing designers and our work has been featured in major design magazines. While this recognition is both humbling and rewarding, I am driven not by accolades, but by the creative process…by the freedom to paint.
