Hello dear Visitors,
Welcome, I hope you browse around my website and enjoy seeing what I enjoy so much painting.
My passion is Trompe l’oeil and Decorative Art, and I love using those techniques to revisit traditional as well as contemporary art, in all shapes and sizes.
If you have a decorating idea or project please contact me, I’ll be happy to help you turn your idea into a stunning, spectacular visual reality.
Murals can be painted on loose canvas -which can then be applied to a surface, or mounted on a board, or stretched on a frame-, or painted directly on walls, furniture, glass and any other surface you can think of; and they can be of any shape and size.
The possibilities for transforming any space are endless, so please let me assist you in making your environment original, fun, beautiful, elegant, luxurious and unique.
All it takes is a little paint!
