    Our children's library is now a welcoming space that celebrates community thanks to Doug Morris' creativity. He is a gifted artist who listened carefully to our vision and skillfully depicted the diversity and history of our community on a 25' x 10' wall. The mural he painted in our library to commemorate our 50th Anniversary provides depth in a small space and brings the illusion of light to an otherwise dark room. He also painted a whimsical design for our children's entryway that compliments the mural. We couldn't be more pleased with his work.

    Doug is a master craftsman and a talented artist. His mural for our grand-daughter's room is warm, enticing, and exactly what we were hoping for..

    About this pro

    I started in business as a graphic designer before transitioning into exhibition and interior design. When I quit - because I wanted to be doing something that was more "hands-on" - I explored working with wood, metal, ceramics and glass. When I began learning the basics of faux finishing from a master craftsman from England over 20 years ago, I quickly became hooked on the reaction of our customers to the way we transformed their homes. There's something exponentially satisfying about exceeding people's expectations. Customers often have an idea of what they want, sometimes they even have pictures as a guide, but when they see the completed result, the difference it makes to their home, they are quite often totally amazed. My background in commercial design, sets me apart from most other decorative artists. I spent years meeting deadlines and developing the discipline to harness my creativity to satisfy customers, and not impose my own preferences or muse, unless they were relevant. There are many artists to choose from, so I am always grateful to have another opportunity to do what I love for people who care about their homes. Although I began to draw the world around me before I reached kindergarten age, my fulfillment has always been in using my creative and technical abilities to help others. Whether as a designer, helping establish the public face of major companies, or as a muralist, faux finisher and decorative artist, bringing rooms to life and turning homes into whatever kind of castle their owners desire.

      Q & A

      • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
        When choosing a mural or faux finish artist, the only way to feel comfortable with your decision, if you don’t have a referral from someone you trust or you don’t know someone whose work you’ve actually seen and admire, is to compare your options. Do you like them; would you feel comfortable having them in your home; are they helpful; does their portfolio give you confidence in their abilities; do they take the time to understand what you’re trying to achieve – to address your concerns, to discuss possibilities and options? Choosing a mural or faux finish artist is personal. They’re going to be working in your home, possibly for some time, and unlike with many service providers, what they will be doing will be very visible and reflect on your taste and sense of style. Ultimately, while price can be an issue, there are other factors that determine value, and only you can decide which of these are important.
