Do you have a big boring, empty wall that makes you feel closed in? Need a mural to make it open out and feel really spacious? You’ve come to the right place – murals are my specialty!
A mural can transform the ugliness of graffiti into a “Wow!” factor image that stops people in their tracks.
Trompe l’oeil (or “trick the eye”) murals give an illusion of depth and 3D space. These murals can magically change a cramped space into a wonderful spacious view.
The remainder images are from one I finished recently. It’s called “Trompe Secret Garden”. This was a commission for a client in a private home in inner Brisbane
This mural took me 40 days to paint. Here is a short time lapse video of the entire project from Youtube.

Give me a call if you’d like me to come out and visit you to check out your wall and offer some suggestions of how we could transform it.

See below for answers to some questions you may have.
Have a look through photos and timelapses of all my murals at the mural eye.
What sort of surface can you paint on?
Do we need to prepare the surface before painting?
What if we’re not sure what to paint on the wall?
What if the wall is really high?
Can I spread the payments out for the job?
When will the job begin?
What if we don’t like the end result?
We have a Happiness Guarantee that makes sure you will be happy.
Here’s how it works: We spend time to discuss ideas together first, then I will prepare a small sketch of the final result so you know exactly what you will be getting, in advance. All the way along, if you would like anything changed, I am happy to do that. If there is no backtracking on work you’ve already asked me to do, then there will be no additional cost!
We are here to serve. You are in full control of what is painted on the wall. We guarantee that you will love the end result!
How do I get started?
When we chat, we will agree on the size and scope of the job so I can prepare a full specification and quotation that details exactly what we have talked about, in writing. We can also work out how your payments will be spread out over the job.
Give me a call so we can get started!
Can you paint on a wall that has gloss paint on it?
What colour is the best colour for the wall before you start to paint?
Can I get you to paint things that are special to me in the mural?
How much will it cost?
Generally the square metre rate for our murals ranges from around $500 to $900 per square metre. This excludes any extras or GST. The final investment depends on several factors:
- how many square metres of area you want painted
- what sort of detail you are after in the painting
- whether there are extras such as:
- exposure to weather, or
- difficult access
- whether you want to have the surface prepared by me or whether you do it
- how rough the surface is for painting on
- whether you need the final mural to have a protective coating applied
Just think of the amount of joy you will get every time you look on your mural in the years to come. And how you will feel whenever a visitor exclaims “Wow!”. These benefits that swell your heart with joy will of course be priceless!
How long will it take?
I can usually paint a 10 sq m mural in around 2-3 weeks, depending on the detail and the difficulty of access (scaffolding etc)
Is there any risk of damage to our premises?
I always take great care with your property while I am painting there. I have very large tarpaulins to protect all surfaces and I also have full insurance in the business to cover us in case of any unexpected problems. But you can trust me to take a lot of care! Just as if it is my own home. In all my years of painting mural commissions (since 2001) for both corporate and private clients, I have never had any problems.
How do I know what it is going to look like before it gets painted?
Together we work on a design of the entire mural before the first lick of paint goes up on the wall, so you can see what it will look like beforehand. I will create a small sketch or painting of the entire mural, drawn to scale, for you to approve. Your input is essential at this stage to get exactly what you are wanting in the mural.
We work together until you are completely happy with the design of the mural, before work goes ahead.
