Hello! My name is Laura and I am a mixed media artist and mural painter living in Aurora, IL which is about 40 miles west of Chicago. I’ve painted murals in dining rooms, play rooms, nursery rooms, tween rooms, and public murals around Aurora as well as other places in Chicagoland and Wisconsin. My mural painting style is best described is nature based with a colorful and whimsical style.
I use high quality mural paints for both interior and exterior paintings. Making sure the paints have a high lightfastness rating means the colors stay vibrant.
Oak Park, Illinois “Wall of Murals” by the CTA Green Line Oak Park Stop. I painted “Turtle Astronomer” in 2019. The “Mini Murals” have been painted by a variety of artists over many years. It’s quite impressive and creates a fun atmosphere on that street. Check it out if you are in the Chicago area.
I design custom murals to fit your space and your ideas. We will work together on any edits in the rough drawing plan to make sure it’s the best fit for your room. When I’m working on a project I feel it’s really important to communicate along the way to make sure we are both on the same “page” for the project. Here is a rough drawing plan of a mural that wrapped around an entire room. Read more about the cat play room mural here.
Most of my designs translate very well into mural paintings. Colors and compositions can be easily adjusted. Commission your own idea, or take a peek at my art for inspiration. Below are some examples of how my designs would look on exterior walls.
The mural below was printed and adhered to a metal base. There are a lot of new materials and alternative options for murals besides applying the paint directly to the wall. This mural for domestic violence awareness is mounted outside of Water Street Studios in Batavia, IL. Read more about the non-profit mural project here.
