Willem Racké founded his studio in San Francisco in 1989 with a focus on collaborating with interior designers, architects and clients to create beautiful decorative finishes, custom hand-finished plaster, murals and cabinetry.
Racké has a long history in the art of the painted finish, beginning in Manhattan where he assisted Jeffery Johnson, a noted finish artisan. He is a master of period finishes, and has an artist's talent for interpreting traditional techniques with a contemporary perspective, suited to today's sense of style and design.
A full staff of multi-talented artisans are ready to assist in the realization of any designer or client’s vision within a time frame suited to the project. Willem’s eye for color and texture, supported by his knowledge of art history, give him an ability to discern the client’s needs as well as efficiently make them a reality.
