Graduate of Parsons School of Design. I worked first as an illustrator and then as a painter of childrens themed murals in private homes and play scenery. Murals are executed in latex and acrylic paints. My style is realistic .. I can copy anything or create a new image for you. I prefer to charge by the project or per square foot rather than the hour , as clients needs are very different and want to be sure the end product is what you and I visualized. If you are interested in samples of my work I would be happy to send some to you
