From ugly to wood

Artist at work. Liz Taylor is an artist with a purpose. The Brampton-based custom woodgraining professional can magically transform any drab and dull looking surface— metal, wood or fibreglass— into eye-catching and spectacular things with interesting wood grain patterns.

Liz Taylor is an artist with a purpose.
The Brampton-based custom woodgraining professional can magically transform any drab and dull looking surface— metal, wood or fibreglass— into eye-catching and spectacular things with interesting wood grain patterns.
Woodgraining is artwork painted by hand on any surface to resemble the appearance of a selected oak finish.
Rusty metal barns, tired looking garages and front doors of homes, begin to assume an almost new look after Liz wields her brush.
Liz learned the tricks of the trade from working alongside her father Ted Taylor. She said his “secrets” and knowledge of special products— that he passed along to her— ensures the finished product has colour consistency and durability.
Ted, a pioneer, had perfected the technique whereby he could reproduce wood grain in any colour and any type. He was a man who hated eyesores and sought every opportunity to fix them.  
“Dad lived in an apartment on Nanwood Drive. He was 76 at the time,” said Liz. “He saw a house across the street with a purple door and offered to wood grain it. He told the owners if they liked it, they could pay him $25. If not, he would give the door a fresh coat of paint in whatever colour they chose.” At one point, each and every house in a Heart Lake subdivision sported woodgrained garage doors, picnic tables and fences.
“I remember my mom one day asking me to go to Heart Lake to pick my dad up,” Liz said. “I asked her for an address. She didn’t know, so I drove up to the newly developing community and followed the woodgrained doors until I found him.”
In 1980, Liz was working for a carpet company when she realized she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps.
She handed in her notice that afternoon and plunged headlong into a life that involved hours of hard work.
“Who wouldn’t love my job?  Everyone is in awe of how it transforms anything that can be painted with a technique used only by us,” she said. “A technique dad developed himself.”
Today, Liz’s son Jesse, works with her just as she once did with her father.
“My two children— Jesse and Tam— often came with me on jobs when they were young and started helping at an early age,” she said. “I trust both Jesse and Tamara will continue the family legacy of woodgraining, both in the artistic aspect as well as the commitment to continue what their grandfather started. Dad worked until he was 87. By then he was deaf and blind but he was one of the happiest men I knew.”

I have just received ths email from DAD'S FIRST CUSTOMER the one referred to in the article!

Hi Liz

I just read the article in the Guardian Booster about you. Just to let you know that door you mentioned in the article was my door and yes it was a crummy clour as your father stated. Here is how the whole thing started.

There was knock at my door, and when I answered it there was a little old man with an English accent wanting to make my garage door look better for $25. As you stated in the article, if I didn't like it he would re-paint it for free. After he completed the work, I was so amazed with it that I had him paint the front and back door as well. That doors still has Ted's paint work today. I forgot how much extra I paid him.

My best friend who lived in Heart Lake was so impressed with  the work had your father do his garage door. That's were his work in Heart Lake took off. Your father and I became friends. As a matter of fact he made a demijohn of wine in my garage. More stories about that.

I had an old truck that was pretty well beaten up and looked like hell. You father made the sides look like wooden panels.

I believe I met you at your fathers 80th birthday party when he lived in the apartment. In any event Liz good for you for keeping up dad's trade. Your work looks magnificent.

Best regards Lino Fraresso
