Meet the Team

Derek and Andre were in the right place to develop their business and perfect their craft. Living in Southern California afforded them easy access to a network of other decorative concrete contractors and extensive industry training by Fu-Tung Cheng, Ardex, Life Deck, West Coat, ArcusStone, Bomanite, Increte and Americrete. Their work has been seen in magazines, newspapers, books and on TV.

13 years of experience in concrete with emphasis in precast and concrete flooring. Color in the concrete world is often tricky. Much of my success has been to produce the right color for the customer. I have worked with several companies in the precasting industry building my resume beyond being just a concrete artisan.

With over 35 years of concrete artistry experience on his resume, Derek is continually experimenting with innovative designs and treatments. He is excited about the opportunity to introduce the beauty and uniqueness that decorative concrete and in particular Artwork Surfaces has to offer.


“I want something different” the beauty of it is we work with a material that can go outside the well known box when it comes to countertop materials and continue to bring something new to every customer. 

3D ModEling

An image speaks a thousand words. 3D modeling help the designers and customer visualize final apperance, color and space requirements.

BUILD YOUR Dreams INTO Reality

I heard a statement made many years ago that I continue to use today “it’s like working with paint and clay”. Working with concrete can be likened to an artist palette. We use it to bring colorful 3D visions to life.
