“Rik is a talented artist who paints extraordinary murals with a passion. He spends the time to help you figure out what you want and what would be best for your home. He helped us transform a “problem” room into a serene and beautiful escape. He did a stunning job on our Tuscan-style dining room, using colors that warmed the room, and adding his personal touch to the ceiling and archway. He is professional, on time, on budget, and unobtrusive. I will definitely hire him again. Working with Rik is a pleasure, and his artwork is a great investment.” Nicole Heinmetz
“Rik painted an outside wall mural for me a few years ago and I have to say that this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I commissioned the mural for a Healing Garden that I was creating for my son, Ben, who at that time, was in need of a kidney transplant. The garden was to signified hope and rejuvenation and the art for the mural was chosen to complete the theme.” Merry Street

HOW IT WORKS
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!
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).
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.
