Aurel has worked in our home in American River Canyon numerous times and his attention to detail and eye for design regarding paint and custom paint is amazing. Basic painting is something he can do, but anything you want done that is "special" or "custom" is where he really shines. Price points are within reasonable boundaries and his time lines are always efficient. Aurel is also respectful and professional and we feel comfortable having him in our home with our family. I highly recommend Byzantine Painting Studio for your next project. Sincerely, Michael Hershey

As a designer, I have worked with Aurel over many years. He has done numerous jobs for my clients as well as work in my own home and office. His skill level and artistry of his craft is superior. He takes the upmost pride in his work and it shows in the detail of his craftsmanship. He has been timely and beyond fair in his pricing.

Aurel was recommended to us by our interior designer to help with our home remodel. While we originally contacted him for just our kitchen and living room, we were so enamored with his work that we added our wine room, media room, and bathrooms to the scope of work. In every instance Aurel exceeded our expectations and provided an end product that was more than we hoped for. He is truly talented, and a pleasure to work with.
