Rik is professional, researches carefully the community of Ramona and the suggested topic of the mural. He always honors his deadlines, and our installer even commented that he’s the first of our muralists who also knew how to handle a drill motor!

There are many words to describe murals:

Tuscany or Italian, modern, contemporary, abstract, realistic, landscapes, portraits, colorful, bold, soft, trompe l’oeil, trick the eye, graffiti, commercial, public, children’s, ocean, sky, ceiling, beach, tropical and this is only a partial list. I specialize in REALISTIC and TROMPE L’OEIL (Trick-The-Eye) murals although I’ve been called on to paint abstracts and others as well. There are also specialized techniques used such as Italian Plaster, Venetian Plaster, Glazing.

Murals can be painted on walls in nurseries, man caves, kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms ,boardrooms, factory walls, etc. Business logo also look great freshly painted onto wall entry areas.
