From the time I was little and saw letters on my neighbor's kitchen wall, I've loved the idea of lettering in my environment, as well as pictorial murals. When does a painting change from something to hang on the wall to something part of the wall? There's no strict answer. Murals can be created off site and installed later; but lettering directly on the wall is wonderful to do.
I also offer a workshop that includes brush lettering, faux finish techniques and methods of approaching big projects called "Living with Letters: Wall that Talk".
