Award winning artist Uli Kuess was born and raised in Austria and moved to America in 1979 to pursue her love of art. She brought with her vast years of experience and knowledge acquired at the University of Vienna and in numerous seminars and classes on a variety of artistic subjects and techniques. Uli has also traveled extensively throughout the artistic capitals of Europe and the Middle East. This has provided her with an extensive background in classical art, art history, architecture and restoration. As a result she has developed a lifelong passion to create beauty in anything she works on.
Uli is a master of the decorative and architectural arts, including Old World finishes, murals, frescos, trompe l’oeil renderings, mosaics, plasters, bas-relief, sculpture, parquetry and is an expert in art and antique restoration.
She is also well known for her fine portraits, Master copies and other types of fine art commissions and provides design services for a variety of projects.
Uli is highly sought after for her ability to create incomparable one-of-a-kind interiors transforming mundane and ordinary spaces into extraordinary and stimulating works of art that enhance the substance, harmony, comfort and style of her patrons. Her work has attracted the attention of a discerning, international clientele and extends from exclusive residences and prestigious commercial structures to yachts and airplanes throughout the world.
A recent addition to Uli’s repertoire is her GEMSTONE ART SERIES.
These one-of-a-kind three dimensional art pieces are created by embedding various gemstones and crystals from around the world into plaster and textured paint backgrounds creating unique works of art fusing paint and sculpture.
Uli has always been fascinated by the beauty that abounds in nature, specifically in marbles, granites, crystals and gemstones and has found a method of combining nature with her beautifully painted backgrounds. The results are exquisite, unique pieces of art that go well with any style of décor.
Custom pieces in any size or color-scheme can be produced at a client’s request
