Surfaces to be painted

Responds in about 2 hours

Introduction: “Let me paint your dreams” is my catch phrase (as well as my web site!) My specialty is working closely with my customers to come up with a composition that works well as a mural or on a canvas capturing a particularly special subject matter or design. Sometimes I am given several examples of their theme or idea and sometimes it starts with literally a simple thought or even a dream they have always wanted to see in color! I will work up sketches first and make changes until we get it right! Nothing in the world is more enjoyable to me than sitting at my easel and creating something totally new!

Holly was amazing!! Great at communicating and getting an understanding of what we were looking for. She kept me posted on her arrival timing. And Holly painted an incredible mural in my baby’s room! Now on cloudy days we all have somewhere to go sneak in some blue sky time, as long as the baby isn’t sleeping. Holly worked while I was home w/ the kids (toddler & newborn) and was so quiet my curious toddler forgot she was even there working and napped normally while the magic was happening just steps from her door. I am so happy w/ her work!!

Details: Indoor wall(s) • Residential • Medium (25 - 50 sq ft) • I have an idea of what I want

Holly was incredible! She took the time to truly get to know me so that she could capture my vision just as I saw it! 10/10 would recommend! Her work has completely transformed my home Montessori space and I’m happy to call her a friend now, too!

I wish I could give 10 stars!! Holly took my idea of what I wanted and made it even better than I imagined. I am so so happy with our mural. I will be bragging about her to everyone I know. Thank you so much Holly for helping us welcome our little girl into the world with a magical painting. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Holly arrived at 5:45 am to draw the “B” on our outdoor chimney wall! She wanted to make sure her projector would focus correctly before the sunrise! Perfect job! Holly is a total professional wonderful artist! I will hire her for many more cool designs.

FAQs

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

    Each and every project is different depending on variables such as size, subject matter, mediums, style and details. The placement of the mural can also affect the price such as exterior vs. interior, height or difficulty in reaching the wall and use of scaffolding etc.

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

    I begin with a consultation and discuss details of the desired artwork. Should we agree that the project is something we may like to pursue together, we will discuss price and deadlines. A deposit is usually about 1/3 down with two additional payments-one about halfway through and one at completion. (Other payment agreements can be discussed)

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

    I have many years of art and painting experience as well as attending a “master class” with Robert Bateman, Canadian wildlife artist as well as private instruction through local “Omaha”, water colorist, Yvonne Eymann. I work closely with local muralist, Richard Harrison and have his support if needed for larger mural projects.
