Seascape Mural. - Brightened a client's nursery with a seascape mural reminiscent of her time in Belize.
Faux Mosaic Dresser. - The dresser design was modeled after a collection of found stickers, and executed by first underpainting the shapes, then adding the mosaic effect with an ever-trusty Sharpie pen, and lastly including a variety of colorful dimension through the application of colored pencil. All was then well coated with a glossy varnish to seal and protect for years to come.
Yellow Brick Road.
Chinese Dragon Mural. - The client requested a mural of a Chinese dragon tattoo, to be designed for and painted on her child’s wall. I went with a stylized look in keeping the subject friendly, approachable and age appropriate, lest the finished product be found a tad too ferocious, and in turn, inspire less than pleasant dreams.
Monkey Tree Mural. - These particular monkeys were designed to match a children’s bathroom decor set, and can currently be found swinging about in the humid climate of a nearby shower and bath.
Damask Mural. - A damask pattern was selected and then applied in sweeping, free brush strokes as opposed to the more uniform and rigid look most often found in the repetitive pattern of damask.
Veggie Tales Mural. - The popular Veggie Tales series can be seen here, where Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and Junior Asparagus stand in a group huddle, all smiling out from the interior wall of a child’s walk-in closet.
Brick Mural. - The bricks within this particular mural were kept a tad loose in interpretation with a thicker heavy line application at points and a stylized curvature to many of the bricks.
Stay Chair. - The lone remaining chair in what was once a series of dining room chairs that each featured a word individually placed upon the seat: “sit”, “stay”, “eat”, and “enjoy” all in a varying choice of font.
Cuckoo Clock. - Love a good cuckoo clock what with its iconic cultural status and whimsical take on the keeping of such a serious issue as the passing of time. However, the traditionally uniform brown wood, with or without the inclusion of primary-colored accents, remains an unappealing aspect. So, I chose to put my own spin on one with a palette more reminiscent of my style.
Metal House. - Repurposing items is not only the green thing to do, but quite often makes for an aesthetically pleasing choice as well. Here, a flea market find has been freshly painted and made ready to tell a whole other story in its newly extended life.
