Magnolia floral mural with chickadees
Jane loves everything floral and fauna and has always wanted a magnolia tree. Her amazing yard is full of beautiful trees, flowers and birds and it was delightful to bring some springtime magic on inside for her to enjoy year round. Jane owns a successful interior design business, Jane Ellen Interiors, and I so enjoyed working together with her to bring her vision to life. I’m also very happy to have made another new friend!
The Moon Gate was originally only found in the gardens of wealthy Chinese nobles but now is also found in Patty's home office. Her mural makes this such a cheerful place to go to work in the morning and also makes for an amazing Zoom meeting background! Can you find what's hidden in the sky? Check out the closer up shots in my portfolio page.
Mimi's mural takes her back to her beloved Steilacoom and the view she enjoyed for 70 years before she moved to Portland to be close to her daughter. At 100 years old she has so many wonderful stories and it was delightful to hear so many of them as I painted her story for her!
PDX Sliders have the most amazing sliders! This interactive mural is great way to get people involved in posting photos on social media. These walls were just blank white walls until I painted the faux brick and murals.
Jim and Clare's mural opens up their living room into the beautiful yard beyond. There are 2 hummingbirds that live in the tree directly outside and it was fun to bring them inside for them to enjoy closeup. Don't forget to check out their pet squirrel!
The two red drangonflies in Mary's mural have very special meaning to her. Shortly after her husband passed away she was visited by 2 red dragonflies in her yard. This happened for 5 days and then they disappeared. When she learned their symbolism as it relates to death it was a great comfort to her. She lived with her family in Thailand when she was young and wanted a mural that would take her to that part of the world. She says that it makes her happy every time she walks in her door and sees it.
This mural pays tribute to a great man called Fancho. His son named a pub after him in the Springs Living senior living communities. This is part of an interactive mural at The Springs Clackamas Woods. It was one of my favorite murals to paint because of all the delightful friends I made and stories I learned!
In the PDX Sliders restaurant The Mountain is always out! This mural really just takes you there while you enjoy amazing food with friends and family.
This mural depicting picturesque Westmoreland neighborhood is in a lovely old building one block from here. It's a throwback to years gone by when Intermezzo and Pogo's still graced the neighborhood.
The view of Portland from the Sellwood Bridge is always breathtaking. I loved riding my bike across the bridge and seeing this view every morning while I was painting this mural. It was easy to be inspired! When you visit PDX Sliders check out the little red PDX Sliders food truck that I painted crossing the bridge.
