Rudy Drapiza just completed a most beautiful mural in our guest bedroom that invites our guests on a path and surrounds them with the beauty of nature - flowers, a river, trees, animals. It is relaxing, pretty, and something to explore. Rudy was quickly responsive in his communications and availability, he was always on time, and his work is professional, creative and reflective of his soul (what he describes in his bio). In addition, his personality was a joy to be around. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for great work at a great price with an excellent work ethic. He's a rare find and a gem.Jun 12, 2019Verified
Rudy’s quality of work was amazing! He is a true artist! He was extremely professional and personable. He was punctual, in fact early. He got my mural finished in a day and a half and the price was very fair. He even did more than I asked him to do! He is very creative,Jun 18, 2019Verified

Mr. Drapiza came prepared with business card & he actually had a sketch from the information I gave him over the phone. It was exactly what I was looking for. He was friendly & easy to talk with. He said he would have it done in one day & he did. The mural was reasonably priced. We have received several compliments on our mural. Thank you Rudy!Jun 2, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is dependent upon the size of the space and the artwork desired which will determine the time frame to create the piece of art and thus the cost.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We can communicate via email or by phone - I can also come to the client's locale to visually see the space and work up some sketches. A formal quotation will be provided and signed by the client and myself and a deposit received before commencement of the job can begin. I am flexible and approachable in meeting a client's need at a price that is within his or her budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a visual artist, proficient in watercolor, acyrlic, oil and mixed media. I stay active within my local art community and love visiting art festivals, fairs, museums, etc. Aside from creating custom murals, I have many paintings available for purchase. I also will accept commissions of specific requests, portraits (including pet portraits), special interest paintings for decor purposes or personal interests, and I can reproduce a favorite classic painting by the masters for your enjoyment.
