Meet Amy Howard

Amy Howard is well known in the furniture finishing industry. She has painted for presidents, princes, and celebrities. Her home, with all its gorgeous furniture, has been featured in multiple magazines and books over the last 35 years.

After publishing two books and teaching her online course, The Old World Finishing Course, she realized her students wanted to continue to learn a much wider variety of finishing techniques both for their personal use and for up-leveling their own refinishing businesses.

The Finishing School's Inner Circle, workshops, and courses is Amy’s answer to this demand for more.
