Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) June 29, 2008
After years of working to create beauty from commonplace walls, Eugenia Almeida, the owner of Knoxville, Tennessee-based painting company A New Hue, was recently featured in the Knoxville Cityview, a local premier magazine, for her abilities to be able to draw inspiration from her surroundings to create works of art that are both beautiful and pleasing to her clients.
"Walls inspire me. I like to take a blank wall and make something never seen before. I once glued a bunch of birdseed on a wall and painted it red to give me the texture I was looking for. It turned out beautifully," said Almeida in the feature.
According to the article, when it comes to materials to work with, plaster is one of her favorites, but she is currently having a love affair with the staining of concrete.
"I really love staining walls to make them look like the oldest in the world," she says.
Almeida has worked with the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, as well as developers such as David Dewhirst and Jim Hickman, to bring her artistry to the Knoxville's downtown. Almeida has for years worked with Jeffrey Nash, most recently on his new venture in the Old City, the Crown & Goose.
