"I am in awe of the integrity and clarity and professionalism of Yana. She was so honest about what she could create for us and completely delivered on her commitments. She accommodated our needs and exceeded our expectations exponentially. She was also just so respectful and considerate of us as clients. She cares so much and shares her passion in a generous way. I can't rave enough about Yana. Whether you want design work or carpentry renovation of a space, Yana is brilliant. We will absolutely be working with her in the future."

"Yana saved us. We had hired a contractor to do some work for us and the end product was a mess. Yana came in and saved the day. Her professionalism, eye for detail, and work ethic are second to none. Her commitment to a project is total and she is not scared of tight timelines. If we want a job done right, the first time, we call Yana."

"My wife and I started contracting Yana in 2012 and she has been our chosen contractor for countless projects ever since.  In 2012 Yana refinished an old dinning table for us to perfectly suit our apartment.  A year later we purchased a fixer upper that required a significant amount of work in a short period of time.  Lucky for us, Yana was up for the challenge.  From painting the interior and exterior of the home to refinishing the baseboards and window frames she completed the work on time and on budget which lead to a handful of other projects to follow.  You can also find her work in our home in the form of a beautifully crafted live edge coffee table as well as an updated outdoor bench for sitting around the fire.  Throughout each and every one of our projects Yana worked closely with us to ensure she fully understood our expectations and took the time to educate us on the process.  Not only does Yana truly value her quality of work but she values her clients and comes highly recommended by our family!"

"Yana has always been a fast painter.
   In my mind she's 'One Pass Yana. One pass and it's done. Many years ago I requested she paint the inside of my house so when it came time to paint the outside of my house I naturally requested Yana whom I had to book well in advance to secure the quality and speed I was wanting. On the day, she was there with paint and tools, organized the volunteers and the extreme makeover began and, aside from a short dip in the pool to cool off from an extremely hot day, the job was finished by that evening. She came back the next day to finish trim and front door.  I'm completely satisfied with the durability of the paint and thrilled with the quality of the work.  She has a comprehensive understanding of products and best practices.
   I have no reservations in recommending her to my friends, some of whom have subsequently used her services with satisfaction."

"Yana has painted a large part of the inside of my house.
Her work ethic is obvious.....organized, orderly, steady ......with special attention to details and repairs . I am pleased with the work she has done.........
And am on her wait list as I have another painting project to be completed."

"When Yana told me she painted amongst other things for a living I was very excited.  I was looking for a painter to change a dark wall to a light one in my living room and to finish the rest of the painting in the house.  Yana gave me wonderful color suggestions and worked extra hard to transform my living room to light yellow and white walls.  Yana is a very hard worker, both fast and careful as she worked around the furniture and my two dogs.  Not only is Yana a painter but she is an artist and I feel that this makes a real difference in the quality of her work and in the care that she takes.  Thank you Yana!.  I have several painting projects around the house, both inside and outside. Yana will fit each of these jobs into her schedule.  I really look forward to having Yana come to my home to work."

"Yana has creative genius and can turn a house into a home.  She has an excellent eye for complementary colours and is adept at updating.  She has custom designed and built rustic, as well as aesthetically pleasing, furniture.  Some of her innovative ideas have resulted in a dining table with an opening, under glass, for a display or small garden; another was a faux beam to cover an unsightly seam in a ceiling.  She applies her artistic flare with delightful results."
