Services: Mural Painting
I paint interior and exterior murals for any environment; academic environments, hospitals, health care facilities, non-profits, for-profits, secular, non-secular, corporate, private residence, restaurants, bars, public spaces, parks and recreation, senior living, entertainment venues, and more.
Furthermore, I paint any surface in those environments including sidewalks, bus stops, benches, utility boxes, newspaper stands, streets, stair cases, ceilings, walls, floors, windows, boulders, and pool bottoms.
If you have a space in mind that is not listed, chances are that it too can be painted and I will be happy to paint it for you.
Are you an artist that would like to collaborate with me on a mural project? I'm interested! Send me a message.
How much does a mural cost?
There are different ways to price mural work. The model I use prices by the square foot (sf = height x width of painting surface).If you would like more specifics feel free to Contact me.
That said... I can create a mural for any budget! There are ways to create a simpler design to save time and money.
How does the design process work?
First, I’ll ask that you describe your vision with as much detail as possible. Providing image examples is super helpful. If you don’t have example images you can search Google or Pinterest for images similar to what you envision in your mind. That will give me a better feel for what you would like. The more information the better! You will not stifle my creativity with too much direction.
Second, I like to understand the space so I will visit the site, if it is an interior space or not easily accessible, I will make appropriate arrangements for access. At that visit I will get a better understanding of what needs planning around (fixtures, immovable objects, lighting, access to water &/or electricity, where to load/unload supplies and equipment, whether there will be pedestrian movement around the space, parking logistics, etc.)
Third, you will pay me a small design fee to create the art concept. Typically that concept is a digital rendering that I overlay onto a photograph of your space to mock-up what the final painting will look like before we start. From that, you will give me feedback. If needed, up to 2 more revisions are included in the design fee, after the first mock-up.
*Rarely, if ever, have I needed to create more than 3 mock-ups. If, in the off-chance that happens with you, no worries more mock-ups can be made for additional fees.
Fourth, we will schedule a start date.
Fifth, payment for the mural is divided into three installments for larger jobs or two for smaller projects. Be it two or three installments, prior to painting the first installment paid covers procurement of paint and/or other supplies.
Does the surface of the wall matter?
Yes. Painting on brick or corrugated metal will add a few hours to the total project timeline but any surface can be primed and painted! Also, deeply grooved surfaces require a certain amount of ingenuity when painting details. Sometimes enlarging the scale so that smaller details are not lost in the grooves helps, other times painting less detail in the grooved areas is the answer. That is why, if it is possible, I like to see the space in person before creating the art concept so I can plan for the trouble spots if there are any.
As a gentle reminder the final painted version may have subtle differences from the digital version. Paint colors may be shades different from the computer model, wall surfaces may require some adaptation to the design, lighting (natural or man-made) may alter the appearance of colors, and sometimes in the midst of painting other factors play a role in how the final outcome appears.
What is the ideal date range for painting outdoor murals?
I paint outdoor murals spring through late fall (with the temperature range between 50 - 95 degrees F)
If you want an outdoor mural and the current weather in your location happens to be outside of that range don’t let that stop you from reaching out! Regardless of weather, we can always begin conversations that communicate your needs and allow me to mock up a design for your review.
After the design is approved, we can schedule painting for a future date when conditions are more favorable.
When can I contact you to book a mural?
You may contact me anytime to book your mural. I paint indoor murals year-round. I can also create mockups for outdoor murals in the off-season in preparation for the at wall painting sessions (weather permitting).
What if my request is outside of your purview?
There are different ways of handling that scenario. If it is a matter of painting a representation of some thing or someone that is not currently in my portfolio then then my answer is: if I can create a digital rendering of your request, I can paint whatever is in that rendering.
If your request is that I paint your space using a medium I have no experience with, for example spray paint, then I will find another artist to collaborate with. Otherwise, If I end up not being the best fit for your project, I can almost guarantee that I’ll be able to point you in the right direction! It’s highly likely that one of my art world connections has the specialty you need at the right price point.
