Anita Hawkins, proprietor of Accent by Design is a professional artist with over 25 years of experience in the art world. She resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a native Californian.  "Accent by Design began as a way to express my inner artistic nature.”. 12 years ago, she was a graphic artist making a living in the computer world, but was looking for an outlet to express her passion for art & color. So, she began to paint murals in homes, which led to decorative painting and she was hooked. Anita says,  “My world has truly changed! I utilize paint, plaster, metallics, concrete, tile and any medium that helps me to incorporate my love of art into a unique decorative finish in my clients’ home or business. From our first meeting to completion of a project, it is always a client’s smile and satisfaction that is the most rewarding. As a professional artist, I am committed to bringing a high standard of excellence & service to my work.”
