About Us

Thomas Wernz, the Owner of Ocala Faux Finish LLC, was born and raised in Germany. He moved to the United States at the age of 14. At 18 he joined the Military and was stationed in Greece.

It was in Greece that Tom began to learn his trade. Picking up odd jobs, and helping friends he began to learn the ins and outs of construction, restoration, and design.

In tech college, Tom studied architectural drafting, and later became a “Master Plasterer” in Germany.

In Germany Tom owned a General Contracting business and was one of the many contractorrs that helped rebuild East Germany after the Berlin Wall fell.

15 years ago Tom moved to Florida, where he now focuses his trade on mostly artistic and decorative finishes. His favorite projects involve utilizing venetian plaster to create Faux Marble Columns and creating Faux Marble effects on irregularly shaped objects through swirl dipping techniques.
