“Of all the phases that go into producing a mural painting, this is my favorite, where the “magic” happens.  After meeting with the client and discovering their specific needs for the room, I do a series of preparatory sketches.  These help me to determine what design scheme is most appropriate for the space, the client, and of course cost and time parameters.  The time dedicated at this phase determines the success of the finished project, and sometimes takes weeks to prepare.”
