President & Lead Instructor

Kelly S. King's goal is to share his vast knowledge of faux painting techniques.

In 1984, Kelly S. King began his career much the same way as many of his students: Starting with a basic talent and interest in decorative painting combined with a burning desire to continually increase his knowledge of faux painting techniques, Kelly soon found himself being offered freelance faux painting assignments for applying his unique wall and ceiling finishes, European plasters, marbling, stenciling, and other faux painting applications.

Kelly's first endeavor was The Painting Pros, Inc., which continues today as a full-service paint contracting company offering general painting, faux painting, and decorative finishing services - including mural and trompe l’oeil renderings - for a large number of discerning clientele.  As word of his unique talent spread, Kelly once more found himself being offered a number of prestigious faux painting projects throughout the country and abroad.  His many faux finish commissions include residential homes and estates, commercial properties, governor's mansions, and even European castles, including Princess Park Manor in London, England.

The Kelly S. King Academy of Faux Painting & Decorative Finishing, Inc. perfectly satisfies Kelly's desire to offer faux painting classes built around faux painting techniques which truly appeal to the marketplace, and to provide insight into the skills required to build and maintain a profitable faux painting business.  As a result, Kelly and the other hand-picked staff of instructors go beyond the classroom, instructing each student in marketing, bidding, invoicing, and other essential business practices needed to run and operate a revenue-generating decorative finishing venture.

Kelly uses his combined field talent, his travels abroad, and his education from talented European craftsmen, along with his artistic gifts, to deliver nothing but the very best training.  Involved with classes in every division of decorative painting, Kelly believes that a student who wishes to seek out instruction in this field needs to be trained and supported by someone with vast knowledge of faux painting techniques and who supports the integrity of the trade.  His experience lends much credibility to the faux painting classes offered through The Kelly S. King Academy of Faux Painting & Decorative Finishing, Inc., and he uses this very experience to train students to master the world's finest faux and decorative finishesKelly S. King has trained thousands of successful students and has become one of the nation's leading choices for training in faux and decorative finishing.

In 1998, Kelly had the idea of creating a national event dedicated to helping faux finishers, artists, muralists, and decorative painting professionals in the essential aspects of building their business.  He envisioned an event filled with seminars, training, business and sales education, and a venue to reward decorative finishers for their creativity.  That vision came to life with the creation of The Fauxcademy of Decorative Finishing, which is a highly "sought after" achievement in the faux and decorative finishing industry.
