The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department's 2nd Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat was another huge success with thanks to so many people. The department showed up in full force to provide a safe, fun, and positive Halloween event for the communities near the South Hayward and Coliseum stations. Thank you so much to everyone who provided donations and also to those who attended the event with their families. Everyone’s participation was appreciated and contributed to the success of Trunk or Treat. At our South Hayward BART station, we were lucky enough to have two special guests: The Hayward Fire Department, Station #7 and the most incredible artist and face painter: Sarah Joy of Joyful Expressions. From the time Sarah Joy arrived, there was a long line of excited children waiting to have their faces painted. While they patiently waited, Sarah Joy provided pictures of her designs for the children to choose. She brought smiles to faces of the children and their parents as they watched sons transformed into batman and pirates or daughter into butterflies or Dia de Los Muertos. Sarah worked quickly and was able to accommodate a continuous line of children for 2 hours without any break. She was the highlight of our 2017 Trunk or Treat. We would highly recommend Sarah Joy and Joyful Expressions to other police agencies, community groups or families looking for a dependable, professional and creative face painter to add to your events.
Farnaz is a very talented artist and muralist. I own one of her paintings and I proudly display it on my living room wall. I have see some of her murals specially the one she did in a six story residential building in San Francisco where she did three images on all floors plus a wonderful mural on a 150 foot long wall in the backyard. I highly recommend her.
We hired Ferran to paint a mural for our office. Ferran did a great job with the mural and was super professional to work with. He came by our space and we discussed some possible designs. He then sketched the design we agreed upon and superimposed it on a picture of the space that he took. That gave me a great sense of what it would look like even before he got started. The mural was done in just a few weeks, which was on time per the schedule he laid out. I would definitely work with Ferran again if I wanted a mural in this style.
I was looking for a mural for my kiddo's room, and was so lucky to find Nora. She created a beautiful work of art for the house that was exactly what I was looking for. My kid said she "super duper terrifically loved it!" And, I appreciated Nora involving her in the process and generously sharing her abundant talents and skills as an artist with my daughter. Nora was professional, punctual, efficient, flexible and friendly from our first contact. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for a mural or artwork for their home, office building, or really any large scale project. I felt Nora had special sense for what was needed and abundant talent to create it.
Years ago he did an incredible paint restoration of my former audio mastering studio, Masterdisk. Mark allowed me to be on the crew. I learned an immense , as well as enjoying myself. From under murals to bronze columns , it was an incredible transformation only 3 weeks, it was 11,000 square feet.
Anne Giancola is a highly talented artist and masterful in creating some beautiful, one-of-a-kind murals, wall treatments or visual wall art for anyone looking to beautify their business, office, common areas, accent walls -- or in the home for a kid's room, kitchen, bathroom, over the fireplace or outdoors. . She also achieves artful hand painted furniture with her special glazes and decorative faux finishes. Anne is kind, easy and wonderful to work with and really listens to her clients. She has a true understanding of what it takes to create a warm and charming environment using her special techniques, strokes and artistry. You won't go wrong - I think she's the best in the industry.
China was great to work with. She was incredibly responsive and is very talented. I hired her to create a mural for my company because I loved her illustrative style. She created a design that fit our somewhat specific requests and worked with a less-than-ideal wall space--she painted the doorknobs into the mural! We were flexible about the timing, so there were no issues there! She completed it to my complete satisfaction. Thanks, China!
Desi Mundo is an amazing muralist and community organizer. His work in Oakland has included training young people to be muralists, as well as engaging local artists in mural making. The murals they produce are relevant to the community and celebrate authentic culture. Desi Mundo and Community Rejuvenation Project have painted the United Roots/Youth Impact Hub community center, and engaged many local youth and adult artists in the process.
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.
We hired Pam to paint a mural on the office wall to greet all visitors to Los Paseos. We gave her a general idea of what we were looking for and she took that information and created an amazing mural that was completely appropriate for an elementary campus.. She was wonderful to work with, very professional and her attention to detail was admirable. I would highly recommend Pam, hands down.
Mike is a professional artist/mural painter, but I’m so glad he decided to do interior painting on the side. He is a pleasure to work with, extremely professional, friendly, and ready to jump in with all aspects of the job (he even took down our curtains and moved furniture for us). He is a perfectionist and truly cares about the quality of his work. Our room looks great, and I am having Mike come back to paint our steps next week. Would highly recommend if you need someone professional, creative, and caring.
I'm really looking forward to the final product! Paul has returned all of my phone calls and has been prompt when meeting me. We can't wait to see his vision for our school murals!
We had a mural on the side of building that was done over 28 years ago and has never been restored. I had Everett restore the original painting and also add to it keeping the over feel of the mural the same. He a fantastic job. He was open to changes, timely and reasonable in pricing. We have gotten nothing but compliments. I would highly recommend Everett Regua.
Lara painted a mural for us and it's amazing!
I had the pleasure to work with Ms Claire Lau on a mural painting project of the School of Hotel and Tourism Management at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Ms Lau was creative, talented and resourceful. She was very independent but also interacted very well with faculty members, staff and students. The murals rose up the stairwell from the third to eighth floors in our school taking stair climbers on a visual journey around the globe. We were so pleased with the result that we invited Ms Lau back to adorn the walls of our basement which houses the School's training restaurant, wine lab and other food production labs. The project was challenging but hugely fulfilling and exciting. I would recommend Ms Lau for any endeavour she chooses to pursue and wish her every success in the future.
Yurik is a wonderful artist. He did an amazing mural on our wall and he worked off of only a very simple photograph and made the most beautiful mural out of it. It was a very challenging project as we had a big simple white wall in our living room but Yurik took up the challenge and in the end, our living room looked very unique. Yurik is very professional and talented and I highly recommend him for any project!
Alana did a fantastic job painting a giant spirit animal mural in our office. She is always our go to for anything creative!
Kathleen did such an amazing job for our mural! She responded to all our questions promptly , created a curated mural that was unique to what we needed! Highly recommended! True artist and great talent! Thanks so much Kathleen!!

I tend to get hired to paint animals quite often. My animals all have a spirit and an energy painted in them. I have many styles, am easy to work with (no prima dona here) don't mind adjusting an image and look for input from my client. I'll work on a payment plan and I'll involve the kids if that's what you'd like. I take pride in what I do. I'm not just slapping paint. Murals are an extra for me. I have a real job and only take the gigs I want to do. So, if I accept a gig from you you know you've got a artist who's interested in producing her best because she's engaged.

Some murals can look sort of "amateurish" (color choices, perspective may be off, may look cartoonish when realism is indicated, special relationships a little off. My work will suit the space, theme, colors compatible with the rest of the room, I take great pains to create an image that fits the style of the home. I take my time to produce excellence.
