We have over 80 years combined experience!
The company was founded twenty years ago by Bill Fisher and from
the inception education and experience have been the cornerstones.
Bill Fisher started Renaissance in 1990 after graduating with a
BS degree from Marquette University. Bill worked in corporate capital
management for a few years, but realized he needed to participate
in a hands on business. He soon found himself in Chicago at one
of the first US decorative painting schools in the country, Miller
Bill went on to study with master painter Mike McNeil from whom
he learned the art of wood graining and marbling. Since then it's
been a journey across the US and on to Europe to see first hand
the master works of decorative painters.
"There are pieces in St. Peters cathedral in Rome that were
painted so well you can't distinguish them from the natural marble
next to them. I knew I had a lifetime of learning and practice ahead."
Bill has been practicing the craft of decorative painting for more
than twenty years. The lead painters have four year degrees from European
trade schools. The lead artist is a graduate of the Art Institute
