Introduction: Check out our new website link above! We're the perfect artist for you, prepared to complete the creation by your deadline needs, and ensure superb quality, care and detail in every piece! We travel the U.S. and ship abroad, working primarily in the Southern California area. Feel free to contact us here or text/call at any time if you have questions or if you'd like to go ahead and secure your work dates. ----------------------------------- THE PROCESS: Before ever arriving to begin on the mural/artwork, I send concept images sketched and/or Photoshopped onto your space, so that you may visualize the end result, make sure we're on the same page idea-wise, and make adjustments before beginning the painting on your wall. ----------------------------------- SAMPLES: You can view more of my mural work in my Dropbox folder under my "website" link, as well as ColoringCali (dot) com, or my personal Instagram @Cori_a, as well as our new business Instagram, @ColoringCali. *** And remember that each of these designs were created for the client's specific needs and stylistic desires, spanning the past 20 years of work. I can work in any style to suit any need and space. This folder changes daily, as I add new images continually. ----------------------------------- MY EXPERIENCE: I've been creating murals professionally for over 20 years after being trained privately and professionally from the age of 5, and then continuing to receive a BFA in Graphic Design and Professional Writing, I exhibit at Comic-Con International annually, and co-owned/directed a multi-genre, pop culture convention. Not only do I create murals and pop culture arts, I work as well in massive faux painting and decorative pieces as well as realistic paintings and fine art. ----------------------------------- PRICES: Prices average from $500 to 1000+, depending on the detail you'd prefer and how porous/rough the material is. The price includes all supplies and labor. And I can give you an exact quote with any of the below info: 1. Approximate size of area to be painted. 2. Approximate height from ground. 3. Do you have any sample pics of your design idea/style? 4. Pics of the area to be painted. 5. Surface type of wall. 6. Is surface already painted and prepared with the base color, or do you need me to do that? ----------------------------------- PAYMENT: Once I gather this info I can send exact price or we may negotiate when we speak. I ask a 50% retainer/supply deposit of the agreed amount to guarantee work dates and begin concept designs. Then the remaining balance is due upon completion of the work, on site. I do accept credit/debit card payments or PayPal through secure PayPal network, or Money Order, reputable company check, or cash on site. (Larger projects taking over 7 days may be broken up into benchmark payments.) ----------------------------------- LET'S GET STARTED! I look forward to hearing from you soon so we may move forward, get your dates confirmed, Photoshop a pic of your design onto your wall, and have your AWESOME design knocked out in no time! Feel free to contact me here or via text/call. Very best, Cori Alsbrooks ***BONUS*** REFERRAL INCENTIVE PROGRAM----------------------------------- I also want to let you know about a Referral Incentive I have going: for any client you refer, you will receive a cash payment equaling a percentage of their project price as soon as their work is completed and paid in full. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CERTIFIED: I have a BFA in Graphic Design and Professional Writing, and I retain my HQ teaching certificate in the arts. I have been trained privately in art since age 5, and I exhibit annually in shows such as S.D. International Comic-Con, and ran and coordinate a pop culture convention, The Geek Gathering. I also am on several city rosters for approved public muralists, such as the California DCA's pre-qualified muralist roster and the WeHo Muralist Roster. Feel free to email me or text or call me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully partnering with you on your project. My new and updated website is coming soon! I adore meeting new clients, and having the opportunity to work creatively hand-in-hand with so many wonderful people and organizations around the country. As art is my passion and my solace, I find true joy in my job, and I hope to share this passion with all.

One of our favorite places to visit is the Italian coast near Portofino Italy. We have been locked down this year and could not travel. Every time we walked by our kitchen doors we would look out the windows longingly and imagine seeing the Italian beaches and villages. Then the light bulb turned on, "why don't we have a beach scene painted on the outside wall!?!" Well it was off to Google. First I found Thumbtack and then the muralist category. I corresponded with a couple of artists. During this process Cori was the most engaging and responsive. She did a concept sketch to ensure that we were on the same page and sent over a detailed quote. We picked a start date and used SquareUp to pay 1/2 the cost up front (worked perfectly). After committing to such an arrangement online, your mind can start to work on you "what if they don't show up?", "what if we don't like the work?" "what if they are bank robbers?" I can assure you that, ALL THOSE CRAZY THOUGHTS FLY OUT OF YOUR MIND AFTER THE FIRST 10 SECONDS WITH CORI AND JOHN. They are the most enjoyable, professional and talented muralists you will find. Just get out of their way and let them work their magic. Very interesting to watch someone painting inches from a surface and then step back and see those dots of paint turn into a vivid picture. Great FUN.

Cori was such an amazing muralist for my home painting! She effortlessly depicted what I had in mind for my home. Her shading, lines, detail was exactly what I had hoped for. She was great, just look at the art itself!!

Cori was amazing -- creative, fast and friendly! I will definitely use her in the future if we have need of a talented muralist. The tropical bird mural that she painted exceeded my expectations!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I price by the job rather than by the hour. Due to years of experience, I have learned to give appropriate pricing with the needed information, so that you can be assured your prices won't change at the end. This enables me to give you an exact price from the beginning, which doesn't change unless client adds an extensive amount to the original scope of the project. I also provide package discounts for multiple pieces booked at once, frequent client discounts, as well as discounts for public non-profit locations.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. Agree on price with client (affordable and fixed rate per job). 2. Discuss dates and times available for painting. 3. Ensure I am the right artist for your new creation. 4. Collect 50% retainer supply deposit to secure your work dates and begin detailed design work. 5. I then create sample sketches and rough ideas Photoshopped onto your space, to ensure we're on the same page, and that you have the best design and plan in place before ever beginning on your project. 6. Complete the job, generally within 1-4 days, depending on the size and detail. 7. Collect 50% remaining balance at the completion of the job, on site. *** I do accept debit, credit card and PayPal for all deposits, as well as cash in addition for the balance.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was trained privately by a professional artist beginning at the age of 5. I began creating murals and other art for the public, professionally at age 16. Then I studied art in college, obtaining a BFA in Graphic Design and Professional Writing. Since then I taught the arts to students for over 12 years, and I have been working with clients around the world to create the best designs for the space.
