Kathy van Gogh

Kathy van Gogh has been running her own decorative painting business ‘Fake It’ since 2001 and has established herself as one of British Columbia’s leading experts in decorative painting and plastering. Previously working with Benjamin Moore Dunbar Group, Kathy exclusively runs Studio van Gogh. Based in Vancouver, the decorative finishing school was the only one of its kind in Western Canada and is responsible for training the many of the curent generation of artists. Kathy’s work and knowledge is highly sought after in the United States and Canada where she is often invited to lead classes and seminars. Kathy is fun and dynamic and is passionate about creating unique custom designed decorative finishes for homes and commercial spaces.  Studio van Gogh employs a number of different excellent artisans on an as-needed basis to round out her team.

van Gogh Furniture Paintology is Kathy's latest venture.  She has closed the teaching studio and now exclusively trains the retailers of her fabulous new product line.  BUT...don't despair!  The name of the game is EMPOWERMENT!  All of Kathy's retailers offer classes to the general public! 

It was a natural progression to take all of her expertise and bring it into the Do-It-Yourself world.  With her new line of furniture refinishing products, Kathy has created a family of paints, plasters and waxes that live and play happily together, so that you don't have to figure it all out yourself.  What was once a highly secretive art form, shared only by maestros, is now easily available to anyone with creativity, passion and desire.
