When you commission me to do a mural for you, you won't get a regular boring mural with the same ol' theme.  You are getting artwork that people will say "wow, I've never seen anything like that before!"

This is a section of a mixed media mural that I did for Hotel McCoy in Tucson Arizona.  It's called "Essence of Trees".

 

I create one of a kind, mixed media murals, which is just a fancy way of saying that besides paint, I use other materials in the artwork...Materials like glass, acrylic sheet, glitter, etc.  An example would be the mural above which has acrylic stars that I cut out.  See below for close ups.

Yellow acrylic sheet I cut into four pointed stars and placed on top of the mural

I also created a custom glitter mix for the mural...

Materials:

I use the best quality materials that are suited for the environment they are in.  I only use special mural paints, primers and sealants to protect your mural and keep it lasting for years to come.  For added materials such as glass and acrylic, I use specific adhesives that are formulated to last a lifetime even in harsh weather conditions.

The Process:

First we'll talk about your wall(s) or space you want to makeover, such as size and location, and any general ideas you might have.  If you're not sure what to do with the space and have no idea, don't worry, I'm more than happy to come up with a design for you!  Once the idea is approved, I will do a rough sketch to scale.  Please see Pricing below for the sketch deposit cost.

Sometimes the idea may need to be refined, here the client and I decided to go with a darker color scheme...
