MARTIN GREEN was born in 1966 in Gloucester UK. At age 16 he took an apprenticeship in Painting and Decorating under a very well-known English Faux Finisher specializing in wood graining and marbling. That expert was living legend David Wilson who noticed that Martin had a flair for faux effects and entered him into The National Graining and Marbling Championships. Martin finished first in the Oak Graining and third in the Marbling categories.
Ten years ago, Martin set up Martin Green Traditional Decorating Ltd and the company quickly grew to employing 17 decorators, working mainly in the beautiful English Cotswold’s. Martin also trained at the school of Michael Nadia, who is a Master Craftsman in France. Martin is an award-winning painter and decorator specializing in the traditional craft of faux finishes. As well as teaching, he now personally oversees the refurbishment of prestigious period homes throughout the UK.
