Dan was great! He quickly scheduled a consultation appointment to scope out our space and came in the next day to start painting. Dan has a special vinyl decal device that allows him to quickly and efficiently complete murals such as this. He was very reasonably priced, and really help our new space come to life!Mar 19, 2020Verified
Understands how important a garden mural is during these uncertain times. His creativity is boundless using his tools in a way that treats my small project and budget as important.Mar 31, 2020Verified
I gave Dan a very unique and difficult art task and he did an amazing job. I needed to match the seam between two pieces of marble. He priced the job reasonably and went over and beyond for his service. He came back multiple times to ensure the project was done right. He worked meticulously to make the seam blend in with the slabs. I Hired him again already to hang some mirrors.Apr 11, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Varies but based on $50 - $60 hour for professional services plus expenses. Murals generally range from about $7 to 12 per square foot depending on variables related to each location and mural detail.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It starts with a conversation. Every customer has an idea of what they want. The first part of my job is helping them refine and explain it in such a way as I can begin conceptualizing and visualizing it well enough to begin to put the idea into visual form. I ask a lot of questions to understand what visual style fits their idea or purpose. Early on I'll want to visit the location of the work, get a sense of how the work fits into the existing architecture and the condition of the surface on which the mural will go. We'll talk about the different ways creation of the mural can occur, depending on factors including whether painting directly on the wall is practical or too disruptive (as in an existing open for business commercial enterprise). Those conversations lead to a decision on method, schedule, adjustments to bid pricing, and installation. Once we're on the same page on everything, and an agreement is reached then I begin preparing detailed design proposal drawings/renders showing the potential future work incorporated into photos of the site location taken during the first visit. Feedback results in refining the art concept sketches shared via email or text until the design is approved when I begin scaling it up to full size in the method agreed upon. That might be paint on the wall itself or on canvas or vinyl done in my studio for later installation on site or printed from high resolution digital painting onto vinyl or wall paper to be installed. But it all comes down to having discussions face to face or via phone.
