Murals and Trompe L'Oeil

Murals, or wall murals, or wall paintings, are paintings painted directly onto walls or onto another surface which is then fixed to the wall. See What is a mural? for more information about murals.

My Approach as a Mural Artist

I take the approach that murals must combine the subject matter specified by the client with enough visual interest to survive repeated viewings as people use the room the mural is in. This requires murals to have a strong theme to make an immediate impact, and often requires highly detailed painting together with sweeping perspectives and the introduction of lighter touches in places.

As you will see below, I paint murals in almost any style, depending on what the client requires, and themes vary from landscapes to graffiti and abstract art.

Please contact me if you would like to commission a mural yourself. When emailing me, please tell me where you are, approximate dimensions and the subject you have in mind.

Murals are priced according to the length of time they take to complete (a combination of size, complexity and location). See How to Commission a Mural for more information.

Your mural can be painted straight onto the wall or onto a canvas in my studio and then fixed to the wall. For more information on canvas and wall murals, click here.
