When I first met Hayley and requested an underwater mural, I never expected the beautiful mural she would come to paint for me. It was not only a masterpiece, but far beyond in beauty and detail. It makes me so happy 😊😊😊😊 Haley is also very punctual and responsive and a beautiful person. Thank you, Haley!May 20, 2019Verified
I can not say enough about how happy that I am with the work that Hayley did for me. I have a sun room in my house and it was always my dream to have a beach scene painted in there. I contacted Hayley after I found some pictures that I liked to see if she could do it. To me, these pictures looked very difficult to do, and I wasn’t sure that it could be done. Hayley responded to me that she can definitely do it and was able to do it within my budget. She was very professional when she showed up and was very easygoing. It made me laugh when she told me the mural that I wanted would be no problem to do, after I wasn’t sure it could be done. She made sure that I was happy with everything until she finished up. Everyone that goes into that room now is in awe of the work that she did. I HIGHLY recommend her and if you really want a mural done then look no further then contacting Hayley.May 29, 2020VerifiedThe Bay Area Muralist's reply
Thank you so much Eric! It was a pleasure to paint this for you.
10 Stars!! Hayley was amazing to work with. She was fast, efficient, creative and collaborated really well with my husband and I. She painted our sons underwater sea themed bedroom, and it is truly our favorite room in our house. You must hire Hayley for your next project, you will be sorry if you don't!! Thank you again Hayley!!Nov 26, 2014
Usually I don’t write reviews, unless I feel like it’s necessary. I spent months looking for an artist to paint a mural in my house. Google didn’t help. I looked for painters, artists, etc. couldn’t find anything. Then I thought: “well, i need a mural. Maybe if I look for Muralists, I can find someone who does what I want. And that’s how I met Hayley and her team. Oh, such a great crew. They’re all so sweet and smart. Also so creative and talented. I went out to work and when I came back they had a lot painted already, I was completely speechless. Amazing work! Also I had a chance to listen one of her assistants singing while painting. What a voice! What a group! They’re diverse and that makes them so unique! Each one with your own speciality and experiences. I’ve heard them laughing very much as well, what makes me think they’re super friendly and nice to each other. Moreover, I have no words to describe how satisfied I am with The Bay Area Muralist work. Surely inviting them to paint more at my house. I recommend!Nov 15, 2018
Hayley Ferreira is a sensitive, elegant artist whose work respects her clients vision while demonstrating the full breadth of her experience, skill and knowledge. The murals she creates can make an ordinary house exceptional. My house in San Francisco has an upstairs bedroom that covers the entire top floor. It has cathedral walls and I wanted to decorate one with an ancient Roman fresco from the Pompeii area, the Primavera di Stabiae. I contacted Hayley Ferreira of Ferreira Designs through the Website Find-a-Muralist, after reviewing some of her work online. Hayley was wonderful! She came out to my home and looked over the space, which climbed to 12 feet at its peak, as well as at my printouts of the fresco image. She took pictures and measurements, and listened carefully to my description of how I envisioned the fresco would be transferred to the wall, allowing for the proper scaling, the necessity of extending the original across a much wider horizontal axis, and the adjustments around my closet doors and fixtures. She explained various materials and options for painting, and recommended a limestone paint that would capture the antique feel of the original fresco. We discussed costs and she was up-front and candid about what could be done with my budget. Hayley was also very accommodating on the timeframe. I had a lot of apprehension about the job, since Ive never had a mural painted before, but she made the process very easy. Overall, she was a pleasure to work with and completely professional. The actual painting took about 4-5 days, with Hayley and her assistant coming to my house while I was at work. The intrusion on my space was minimal and my cats were always calm when I got home. The result is fabulous! The finished fresco is dramatic, vivid and perfectly appropriate to the space and my house. I am so happy with my mural, which glows with color and transforms my bedroom into a unique private garden. Hayleys skill is such that she was able to capture the cracking and fading of the original fresco, which was something I especially wanted. I also asked Hayley to paint my dresser to echo the fresco. Its now a charming companion piece to the fresco, featuring antiqued garlands on the drawers. Working with Hayley was a terrific experience! I highly recommend her.Feb 12, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge approximately $20-40 per square foot. It all depends of the detail and size of the mural. Also if it's in a difficult location. This is why I give free consultations.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I give clients a free consultation where we go over everything that they want. I draw a sketch and once it is approved I can start painting. Along the way we can talk about the mural and make adjustments as we go.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Always go with your instinct. There are so many artists out there, and so many scams. Go with an artist that has years of experience and happy clients. Not only that but someone you like and trust. I may be in your home or business painting alone. I want my clients to trust me. Also most important, like the artist. I am leaving a piece of myself for you to enjoy for a long time.
