I'm an art consultant working with a company called Interia Hospitality. I had a large arcade interior design project and needed to find a muralist to take up the challenge. I'm SO happy I worked with David on this project! Not only was the final product absolutely perfect, he was professional and responsive throughout the project. He was an absolute pleasure to work with! We began by reviewing the space together and I asked for some preliminary sketches. The sketches are detailed and give you a good idea of the final product. After approvals, he got to work painting. There were unexpected tricky areas in the project - patterned brick walls & high spaces - but the project & wall prep went smoothly despite this. David was great on finding creative solutions to any challenge that arose. The arcade remained open while he was painting & he was very flexible working around regular business hours. I will definitely hire this extremely talented artist again!! Go check it out in person - In the Game, Peabody! It's seriously awesome!

I was looking for an artist to paint an outdoor wall we have. Once I contacted David he responded immediately and has been very responsive through out the whole process. He provided a sketch prior to painting which helped me with the vision, and it was exactly what I was hoping for. David has immense talent, we are thrilled with the outdoor mural he is painting for us. People around the neighborhood are stopping by commenting on how fun and beautiful it is. David is very professional, clean and responsive I would hire him again in a second! Can’t say enough positive things - hire this guy!

David did a large mural for us at our company call center. He spent a lot of time making sure the condition of the wall was perfect before starting the painting. He was able to copy the design perfectly and It is beautiful! He was on time, kept to the schedule, and extremely neat. I would highly recommend him for any project you may have

David has been very professional so far. We had come to a few barriers which had to do with the building not with David. I had expected it to be a little bit stressful but David has made great suggestions based off of his knowledge and experienced work which made our experience so far not only stress free but also enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing the final results which I am sure will be amazing just like his other work I have seen. Thank you David for your dedication and I hope that you will be doing some more projects with STEPRox Recovery Support Center in the future. I highly recommend hiring David.
