- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The cost of a wall mural is determined by size, level of intricacy/detail and location, such as wall, ceiling or other materials, height, and whether exterior or interior space to be painted. Most mural prices are given per-square-footage and usually range between $16-$35/sq.ft. The larger the mural the less expensive the pricing is per-square-foot. Some murals may require extensive staging (i.e.: high or ceiling murals), cost for those projects will be discussed separately.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My approach to design is to collaborate with my clients as much as they wish to participate in the creative process. It is essential that we begin the design process with a clear description of the "feel" or "mood" and style of the mural. This is typically achieved through a collaborative brainstorming session, and by sharing visual ideas and images that might inspire the artwork. Based on our initial design discussion, I will create a draft and ask for your feedback. If needed, I will prepare a revised draft to integrate your feedback. Revision may include up to two sets of changes by you. The design draft that we agree on becomes a roadmap — not an exact literal representation of what the finished work of art will look like, because a mural really happens on the wall and not on paper. However, knowing the roadmap and “signposts” — having a clear design direction — is imperative for a successful project. Painting I paint wall murals onsite (days and hours) as the client can accommodate. I create portable pieces in my home studio. I like to touch base regularly as the work progresses to ensure that expectations are being met and everything is on the right track. In order to create my best works of art, it is important to let a more intuitive creative process take over when I am painting, so during painting I might tweak the colors, scale and composition relative to the immediate onsite environment. My focus is on getting things right, and I work until we are both satisfied with the results. I will also let you know when I am close to completion so we can review the work together and create a list of final tweaks that are needed. After making the final adjustments, the mural is complete.
