Faux Finishing or Painting
I feel so fortunate that Monica was sent to me. It’s like a miracle.She transformed my room! She is not only a gifted artist who changed a drab room into something magical, but she is dedicated to her work, performs at an elevated level, is punctual, helpful and wants to please her client. I don’t say these laudatory statements gratuitously but with a genuine, respect and gratitude for a person whose faux painting of the walls and painting of bricks met my dreams of what I wanted.Jan 8, 2019Verified
I loved working with Monica for so many reasons! She is an amazing artist and also wonderful to work with. Always professional and on time, Monica came prepared with sketches and ideas for our meetings. She worked on several projects in our home and our family, as well as guests are delighted with the quality of her work. Also, every time Monica gave me a timeline of when she would begin and end the project it was spot on! I recommend her happily with confidence to anyone looking for a mural or special paint finishes. And I look forward to working on more projects with her.May 30, 2017Verified
Monica painted a mural in my man cave that brought a tear to my eye. Her work is beyond exceptional and I highly recommend her.May 29, 2016Verified
UPDATE UPDATE READ ALL ABOUT IT! MURALS BY MONICA SO GREAT - AND USED HER AGAIN FOR A FOUNTAIN ON IN OUR BACKYARD! WOW is she good! So now Monica has done our old cabinet and made it new again for our sun room and a gorgeous fountain for our back wall .............OK - what can I say about perfection? I can say ...Murals By Monica is perfection! I am very selective and have ideas that are in my brain and I want to see them come alive! Monica did this and more! We moved to a new home - and I had a cabinet that 25 years ago was custom built! I did not want to toss the cabinet. Our new home has a sun room - and I wanted to turn the cabinet into a sun room showpiece of sunflowers and beauty! Monica did it! And - I am having Monica as well paint a fountain onto my back fence as well this week! Murals By Monica - don't think twice...she is the artist - muralist you need!

We wanted just a little something painted on a large bare wall in our bedroom. I showed Monica a tree that I love in our courtyard and asked her to bring it inside. A couple of hours later we had exactly what we wanted, in just the right shades of color and she surprised us with two little hummingbirds, too.Jul 27, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It is not complicated at all. I have been painting for many years and base my prices on how long I believe it will take me to finish the project. That is your price. I do not charge more if it takes me longer to finish that I anticipated.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?we discuss the project and exchange pictures of the space to be painted and any ideas that the client may already have. I give an estimate which may lead to a written proposal. If the client accepts thus proposal, I start to design tbe mural after I receive a deposit. If design drawings are required, I provide multiple drawings and collaborate with clients and maje necessary revisions. once a design is approved, I commence to painting. the balance is then paid when the client is satisfied with the results.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes! I attend conventions and workshops to stay on top of all the newest paint products and tools.
