Murals are always a wonderful challenge - and I love that they become pieces of public art
enjoyed by many people, who might not otherwise see any of my paintings!
I'm always interested in mural ideas and large scale projects:
do get in touch if you want to find out more about my pricing structure and availability.
The images at the top are from my first ever mural – a 17 x 4m painting in Bryce Street, Whitianga, outside (former) Blue Water Marine Services. The brief was to “develop an artwork that celebrated and reflected
‘Life and the Community Spirit in Whitianga’ with a particular focus on the sea/marine industry and tourism”.
There was 5 months of planning involved and then it took me just 12 days to paint the mural!
Luckily it didn't rain, so I was able to keep going and finish the artwork without any bad weather halting progress.
It felt right to donate my time and skills to this project, which has really brightened up an industrial area in Whitianga.
Mural commissioned by The Mercury Bay Informer,
and installed at the Rugby & Sports Club on Albert St, Whitianga
This mural is 7.5 x 1.2m and painted with acrylic house-paint. It has also been given 3 coats of graffiti guard
which act as a further weather-proofing agent as well as protect against vandalism.
St. Andrews Shopping Village, Braid Road, Hamilton
I've completed 4 murals as part of an on-going project to re-develop the St. Andrews Shopping Village: the Bin Inn (young girl looking into the dry goods bins); the Fruit n Veg shop; the front signage and the 1964 Mustang.
