Hello! I am Eugenia Almeida, Artisan, Teacher ♥
Born and raised in Argentina, I have lived in the U.S. for the past 31 years. After raising five children, I knew I had an artistic passion not yet developed. I started painting my friends’ houses, painting anything and everything. I decided this was my calling and through continuing education classes with other artisans worldwide through specialty schools, I honed my style and my craft and today have turned this passion into a successful business and studio teaching others so they also can ignite their passion.
I continue to take classes all over the world to learn new techniques, I can bring fresh ideas and exciting designs to all of my clients and students. From my first large job painting the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce in Market Square (Knoxville, Tennessee) I knew that by building a village of artisans, I can make the world around me beautiful.
Although it gives me high blood pressure, I have passion for what I do and I love it!

Very unique and creative while being very efficient and timely, which usually don’t go hand in hand. Can’t say enough great things about their work.
