Wall murals have been found on prehistoric cave walls that transformed a space into a place of wonder and magic. Many ancient murals have been found within ancient Egyptian tombs (3150 BC) and in Juxtlahuacan Cave in Mexico (1,200 BC).


Providing custom, professional artwork, decorative painting and design in San Diego and the Southern California area for over 35 years. In other words, Art is my passion! A good artist will have complete knowledge of all aspects of wall mural work. In addition, designing a first-class piece of art should “Pop” and add outstanding “Wow” factor to any room or environment.


The first step is to contact me below for your work. After that we will brainstorm ideas and options to find the best artwork for your walls. From there we will come up with sketches to crystalize the concepts. After those thumbnails are drawn, we will begin prepping the areas and START PAINTING THE WALLS!



There are many words to describe types of murals:

Tuscany or Italian, modern, contemporary, abstract, realistic, landscapes, portraits, colorful, bold, soft. In addition, Trompe L’oeil, trick the eye, graffiti, ocean, sky, 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. Also, there are specialized FAUX techniques used such as Italian Plaster, Venetian Plaster, Color Glazing, etc.


Murals can be painted on:

Walls in Nurseries, Man Caves, Kitchens, Bedrooms, Living Rooms, Boardrooms, Lunch Rooms, Factory Walls and much more. Business logo murals also look great freshly painted onto wall entry areas. Hand Painted wall signs, mission statements, wall graphics, distressed bar signs are also in vogue.
