The Benjamin Moore paint company launched their line of Venetian plaster products in 2007. In 2006, Jesse was hired to train contractors and homeowners in the art of applying Benjamin Moore’s Venetian plaster products.
In 2007, he travelled to Europe to study the history of Venetian plasters and research European architecture, style, and design. There he found inspiration to create newer, more modern versions of these historic plasters. He is continuously pushing the envelope to develop the latest in interior architectural works of art.
In 1999, Jesse started his business in San Francisco. He has trained at various schools including: American Clay (Albuquerque, N.M.), Safra (Verona, Italy), The Joanne Day Studio (Berkeley, Ca.), Faux Masters (Los Angeles, Ca.), and Faux Filled Dreams (Santa Rosa, Ca.). In addition, he has studied and worked with many professional artists from around the world and has had years of experience in residential, commercial, and retail locations. Jesse also provides decorative finishes including wall glazing, stone, marble, and other textured finishes.
