Path to Enlightenment

Item details

This is designed to inspire the joy of reading, and where your imagination can take you. This was painted during regular school hours so the students could see the progress and ask questions. We also had 3 groups of 20 students sit down to hear our story, explain our process, and gave 9 students the experience of painting a small part of the mural. Also, there are hidden objects in the mural:)

My mother taught me …
Never to run with scissors

Or to draw on walls

Well, I don’t run with scissors!



-- But, I did have the urge to draw on walls --

I ignored the urge and held off until 7th grade, and then I did the unthinkable… I asked my Mom for permission to DRAW King Kong ON MY WALL, gulp! Surprisingly, she didn’t hesitate, she said “YES,” and my long-running mural career was born. She had no idea, in that moment, that not only did she give me permission to draw on my walls, but she’d also given me permission to be myself and do what I love!



Fast forward >> All kidding aside, a little humor, passion, and an artistic gift has suited us well. I am an artist… it’s in my blood and in my heart… I am grateful that my wife understands that, and has not only supported my passion for over 22 years now, but has joined me in creating the business we have today.



We offer a unique blend of truly personalized design, 3D style painting, years of professional experience, and the ability to work in a variety of artistic styles (diverse looks… by just one artist) – all giving you the quality and convenience you desire.
