Art on Canvas
I have tried many different painting styles throughout my life. I find myself going back to the familiar – art on canvas. Drawing it out on the canvas, adding a bit of paint and finishing it by applying heavy textures and possibly some fabric, ridiculous trinket, or a silly patch that makes me smile. When I’m painting more abstract pieces I tend to have less of a plan. I adore surrealism along with the sciences and mathematical equations. I feel like I become a part of something I really don’t understand but would like to. When I do have a subject in mind my first plan is to think about it for a while. I still have hundreds of small ink designs on watercolor paper. I just can’t part with because I know there is something in there. Whatever happens no doubt there will be a lot of color, texture and a subject that will hopefully be thought-provoking and will make the viewer laugh or smile.
I enjoy everything about my work. Including the cleaning, preparation, set up and planning. The execution of each project encompasses more than just the paint on the wall. Or face painting for a children’s party. It means listening and understanding what my client needs and wants. It’s my job to make that happen. Communication is an art form that I thrive on. Artistic license is nice but direction from the client is key to making any mural or event feel inspired. I want to be on that team. I want to work with you to make that vision into a reality.
Bidding and Pricing
Of corse every mural project is different however for the most part I price the on the length I estimate it will take me to complete the mural. I include everything in my bid. Most smaller mural projects will take me two to 5 days. After I am hired and the design is agreed on and we have a signed contract the fun begins. First day is cleaning and prepping the area. Drawing it out on the wall and painting will start. I work around the clients schedule so that is based on what hours work for you.
