Architectural painting and renovation.

Through their decorative painting, custom furniture and restorative work, Alene and Jon Pettus, owners of Architectural Painting and Renovation, turn plain walls and rooms into breathtaking spaces full of color and texture.

Alene is an artist educated at the Ringling School of Art and Design and Jon is a builder brought up in the family business of custom home construction in Fairfield County, Conn. The couple met in Boston, where Jon had an established high-end kitchen, bath and specialty renovation business. Alene and Jon blended their talents, applying finishes and restoring historical buildings with a unique flair. The Bull and Finch Pub, St. Patrick's Cathedral and the East Cambridge Courthouse in Boston and St. Paul's Church in Stoneham, Mass. bear their signature of painstaking historical renovation.

They do decorative painting, renovation projects and design and build custom furniture. And in just three years in Sarasota, they have built up an impressive roster of clients. Their work can be seen in the elegant model homes in Rosedale in Bradenton and in the models at Tangerine Bay on Longboat Key. They've also worked in homes on Casey Key, Lido Shores, Bird Key, Siesta Key, Longboat Key and in Prestancia, as well as on such commercial interiors as Body Scentsations on St. Armands Circle.

Their success is easily explained: They are committed professionals as well as fine artists. "We're full-service and we're the ones doing the work," Jon says. "We don't lose track of the job."

By working directly with clients and designers, Alene and Jon look at fabrics colors and the style of the interior. They can design and finish interiors from the very traditional to the extremely contemporary. The scope of their work ranges from a full renovation to a small piece of furniture, and their finishing techniques range from marbling, glazing, sponging, frescoe, tromp l'oeil, stenciling and gilding to hand-painted borders. They also build custom furniture and install decorative structures such as ornamental moldings, columns and soffitry.

Architectural Painting and Renovation can provide practical solutions to the needs of the imaginative homeowner, architect or interior designer. The homeowner can work directly with the Pettuses or ask a designer to coordinate the work. And every client can expect the highest level of personal involvement and expert craftsmanship.
