   Although I have been painting murals for the past 20 years, my first love was painting portraits. I began as a child begging my mother to teach me how to draw faces.  She was very talented at pencil sketching, and began drawing beautiful portraits of the movie stars that were popular when she was a teen. One of her drawings, a framed portrait of the child star, Shirley Temple inspired me to draw too. I began at the age of about 5, following Mom's instructions on how to make eyes look like eyes and lips look like lips, curly hair to look shiny and real, and so on.

   I owe my success to my mother's patience and love, as she taught me. She made sure that as I progressed, I was given top quality artist's supplies to work with, as well as "how to" books on drawing and painting.  With her encouragement, and with many years of practice, I eventually found myself working professionally in the field of advertising, as a commercial illustrator for many major department stores.  After 20 years in that field, I decided to start my own business, Mural, Mural On The Wall, Inc., as a muralist and painter of portraits.  I must say this has brought me a great deal of pleasure. I have enjoyed working for many wonderful people, decorating their homes, businesses, or schools, or painting portraits of their family members.  Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to paint something beautiful for you!

Above:  A Family Treasure:  Oil on canvas, size 24"x24".   Using reference from many different family photos, this was painted for a client as a gift for his mother, which commemorates many special family occasions to be remembered.     Below:  I painted this as a graduation gift for my granddaughter, who had just graduated from high school.  It depicts many stages of her life up to the age of 18 (center).  She will treasure it always.

Above:  This painting is called "Memories". It was my gift to my parents on their 36th wedding anniversary. The two featured portraits were my parents at the time of their engagement way back in 1939. All of the other figures were taken from really old sepia-toned photos of family members from the past (Mom & Dad as children, their parents, and my brother and myself as kids.  My parents were married a total of 63 years.                   

Why not have a painting done of your family's "Memories"?  It will be a gift that will be treasured for generations.
