Owners | Shaun & Karen Burke

just the two of us.

Shaun & Karen Burke are Bravura Finishes. Our company was established in 1989 in Portland, Oregon and are committed to providing superior decorative finishes and exceptional customer service.

Shaun began his career in the early 80's in London. His extensive training in the trades gave him an extraordinary foundation to produce the high-quality and variety of finishes he achieves today. He continues to educate himself with many of the best decorative finishers in the country. In addition, being a member of IDAL (International Decorative Artisans League) keeps him current on the lastest trends, materials and sought-after effects.

Karen grew up surrounded by creativity and business. The exposure to the arts and continuous involvement in the family art dealing business shaped her career. She earned her degree in graphic design at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Ca. Today, Karen maintains her graphic design business while playing a vital business role in Bravura Finishes. About 10 years ago she began designing and handcrafting handbags. After her work was featured in Victoria Magazine & Country Living, there's no time to look back. "I wear many hats and make many bags". 

We invite you to our showroom/studio to view our extensive collection of finishes, handbags and whatever else that might tickel your fancy.

By appointment only.
