Interior Painting

I am a licensed painting contractor (C-33, California license #1013348.) I am insured with IDAL (International Decorative Artisans League) and am bonded. While I am more artistically inclined when it comes to interior painting projects, I have over 20 years of standard house painting experience.

I have been making wall paintings/murals for the past 10+ years. My style is more bold and graphic than atmospheric and trompe l’oeil. Like my reduction landscape screen prints, my inspiration comes from vintage travel posters, antique wallpaper, cartoons and even the paint-by-numbers kits I enjoyed as a kid.

I have worked with some of San Francisco’s finest interior designers on both high-end residential and commercial wall painting projects. I like to work closely with clients and consider each job a collaboration.

I am currently pursuing creative, image-based wall painting jobs as well as straight interior house painting projects in the Santa Cruz area.

Local collectors of my work commissioned this wall painting of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Sky Gliders for their home. They asked to include their beautiful Siberian Husky – he’s in the top, yellow cart and they are in the green cart behind him.
