2 Skills
After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a BFA in painting and drawing, I began a 5-year apprenticeship with master muralist Michael Brown. In 2004 I started my own company, Nurkin Arts specializing in commercial and residential, interior and exterior painting and design. I have produced a variety of different murals for dozens of home owners and commercial businesses. No project is too big or too small, too fancy or too plain.
