We used Ani for our fundraiser last year at our preschool and she did an amazing job! She had a steady line of kids for practically the entirety of the time that she was there and her balloon artistry was a huge hit with the kids! We positioned Ani close to our silent auction to buy parents extra time to browse and it worked a treat! We have invited Ani back again this year we were so impressed!!
Tiled bathrm floor, cut & install wood baseboards, chg cabinet hardware, paint, hang wall rack, install vanity light. Versatile, pleasant, honest local skilled gentleman.
Had some rot around the side entrance to my garage. I could see that it went beyond just the door frame. Working six days a week made Sunday the only time I could be around. No problem for Fred. Came over punctually, had all the necessary tools and material ready to go. We had spoken about the job in length before, and so he even had a new door ready to go on the first trip out. Replaced the door, frame, and a portion of the mud sill. He did it all from the inside, so there was no extensive repair on the siding. He had the whole thing done in about 4 hours. He was going to come back once the sheetrock mud dried and finish painting the wall and trim, but he had already saved me so much time and money I felt guilty. I like to paint anyhow, so I just did it myself the next day. Great job!
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.
Jasper was on time, responsive, and did an incredibly high quality paint job on our cabinets and even helped us install new handles, knobs, and hinges in a short amount of time. Our kitchen and bathrooms now have a great new 21st century look (updated from its original 80's look and feel). The quote we were given was extremely fair. For the overall experience of this job - the only word that can be used here is indeed 'outstanding'.
Daniel was incredibly professional throughout the entire process. Before he even saw the piece in person, he gave me suggestions of potential colors and then came onsite to try a couple. He sanded off part of my table base on the spot, and it turned out the colors we tried didn't work out. He directed me to a paint shop where I might be able to get more advice, and then we agreed on sanding off the old stain fully to see the natural color underneath. He brought a partially finished piece over so I could see it in person, and it looked great. A couple days later he was done sealing the fully sanded piece, and came over to set it back up. Ended up awesome! He took interest in the piece from the beginning and saw it as a challenge to find the right tone for it. He was extremely responsive through Thumbtack and visited my location multiple times as needed, never changing the original quote he gave me. Very pleased with his work and will go to him again if I have any restaining needs.
If we could, we would give Fernando 10 stars. He is the ultimate professional who takes pride in his work and ensures it meets his customers expectations. We received 3 bids, and while they were comparable in price, he was the only one who was going to refinish the cabinets by hand, not spray. His method was much less disruptive and allow us to see and approve each piece as it was done. He willingly adjusted doors and drawers and installed knobs - and cleaned and polished the granite counter tops as well. He ensured he left his work area clean and left no trace of stain or sanding residue anywhere. He was polite, pleasant and professional. He is definitely a top pro and one whom we highly recommend.
Had D&G General Labor do a complete exterior home painting job. This included power washing, prepping, painting and clean up. Also ended up replacing 2 exterior doors that were beyond repair. Osvaldo Huerta and his crew completed the job within the quoted time period and for the agreed cost. Good communications also.
Amilcar Ferrari is a creative artist with a kind soul. I tried to remove a stain from my wooden basin and in doing so, stripped away a small piece of wood. Amilcar contacted me on Friday night to explain the process. This wasn't going to be 'fixed' in one day. This is after all wood we are dealing with and it needs time to sit and dry. He came back multiple times during the week to prime, paint, and sand. He wasn't satisfied until I was happy with the result and even when I said "that's good enough!", he did his best to make it better. I just wanted my sink back and not having a rotting sink was satisfactory for me. I highly recommend Amilcar. He is a true artist who takes great joy and pride in his work. He restored my sink to perfection. It's as good as new; no its much better. Thank you Amilcar. :-)
Great job! Was on time and got the job done in timely fashion. Does good prep work and left area clean! Plan on hiring him again. Have actually used him for interior painting also and was pleased with his work then. Last job was staining our deck and it turned out great and he got it done quickly!
Lisa did an amazing job with a rowdy bunch of preschoolers, they all loved the designs and Lisa was very patient with the little kids
Greg and Jessica came to my home and picked up my mother's Queen Anne style tea table. It was even broken. They did a beautiful job refinishing it in a short amount of time. I have other pieces they are going to do. I am very pleased.
Deborah is an absolute dynamo with a paint brush. In less than two days she transformed my plain white wall into an artistic masterpiece. I can’t say enough good things about this muralist. In short, I guess if you have any kind of job and you want it done quickly, professionally, and perfectly call her. It’s that simple.I’m still blown away by the endearingly lampooned rendition of Picasso’s anti-war masterwork Guernica she painted for me. I know I will get many years of enjoyment from this spectacular mural. I would definitely both use Deborah again for any future projects and recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone else interested in having exquisite artwork grace the walls of their home or workplace. A real pro! Thanks again Deborah.
Our son has had the privilege of calling Shelley Capovilla his art tutor since 2010. She is a warm, creative, and professional artist who has lovingly overseen our 12 year old son's technical, fine-art education for the past three years. While I, myself, would not ever have considered myself artistically inclined, I happily audited a few sessions with Shelley and throughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about watercolor (something I'd always wanted to try and was too chicken before :0) Shelley has also shared her amazing face painting capabilities for our younger child's birthday parties (and beautifully customized to his theme, Angry Birds!). She adorned my hands with henna tattoos for a Bollywood party, too (her work received rave reviews)! Her skill-set is vast, and she is highly gifted within a board range of mediums. While we originally had sought Shelley's services for a purely technical, classic fine art education we found our son benefited from her extensive knowledge beyond just the scope of composition and color values! Shelley, as a person, is just as overwhelming diverse and lovely as her artistic abilities. Being a mother of two sons herself, she's mentored our child regarding the social gauntlet of middle school and early adolescence, she's been overwhelmingly supportive of his creative ideals, and a fierce advocate for his passions and interests in spite of them aligning with most people's idea of a "traditional art" education. For example, it was comic book drawing and "spy buildings" that got him started in the beginning. He's had the opportunity to work with a variety of mediums and techniques, as she believes a true artist is able to improvise and be creative outside their artistic comfort zones. He now is seriously considering going to an art high school in a couple years, and we very much attribute his positive outlooks and associations with art and design to Shelley's considerate care. For all of these reasons and more, I highly endorse Shelley Capovilla to any family seeking commissioned art services or a comprehensive art instructor!
John did an outstanding job on a mural for our non profit. He captured exactly what I had in mind. His attention to detail captured the essence of 1878 exactly. The job was a daunting one considering the size but with his positive attitude he hit a home run. The mural of the Williams Hotel back in the day is the talk of the town and the county with people from all over the world stopping and photographing it. I can't say enough about his work. EXCELLENT!
Traci was an absolute pleasure to work with! The children at my daughter's party loved all her face painting and henna tattoo creations. And i especially loved the custom henna tattoo she made for me :) I look forward to working with for other events that I put to together.
German arrived on time, diagnosed the problem and made the repair. While he was waiting to make sure that repair was solid, he managed to take care of two other repairs for me. He was extremely helpful and fairly priced, and I will be calling him soon to complete a few other projects for me. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I am very happy to have found someone dependable to help with projects around my home.
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.
Jolene did an incredible job drawing the chalk art for a large wall of our ice cream shop. Super professional. Looking forward to hiring her again!
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.
Nate is a great professional muralist & artist! I’ve been painting with him for more than 8 years and he’s always on time and sticks within an affordable budget for his clients. He’s also a great art teacher with elementary school kids and entrepreneur of NewSkool.com!
