How are your murals created?

I paint murals both directly and by using the parachute cloth method. I'm happy to discuss which technique best suits your project. 

Directly painted murals are fairly self explanatory--this method is best for walls that are temporary or very textured. 

If you're looking for a longer-lasting piece, the parachute cloth method is gaining popularity on the East Coast. I paint the mural in sections onto a synthetic canvas-like material in my studio. Once the piece is completed, the sections are applied to the wall using a super-strong adhesive, and then is triple-sealed with a UV protectant.

Parachute cloth takes on the texture of the wall it’s applied to and becomes a permanent fixture, preventing peeling, fading, and extending the life of the mural by decades.

Using this method, murals go up in a fraction of the time of traditional pieces, preventing prolonged clogging of sidewalks and walkways, and cutting scaffolding or swing stage costs markedly. 

Do you only work locally?

Because I paint the majority of my murals in the studio on parachute cloth, roll them up, and take them to the site to be installed, I can travel anywhere with the mural.

How long do murals last?

Murals painted directly can last between 5-15 years. Murals painted on parachute cloth have been known to last at least thirty years without any fading or peeling.

What is the average price of a mural?

Several factors go into the pricing of a mural.

Labor is calculated based on the size of the wall, the level of detail, and materials costs. I am happy to work with you to design a mural that works within your budget, so feel free to ask for a quote.
