THE PROCESS FOR A CUSTOM PAINTING OR MURAL

​ Getting started on a commissioned mural or painting starts with a consultation to discuss size, shape and content of the work you are wanting.

Before your consultation, you should think about:

  1. The room where the mural/painting will go – size and number of walls 

  2. The theme of the mural – beach, waves, surfers, abstract, floral, palm trees etc.

  3. The reference and inspiration images you have of the people, places, etc.

  4.        (Please do not ask to recreate other artist's work, totally unethical) 

  5. For murals please also include photos of the walls/space you want painted.​

Once you’ve decided on the particulars of the mural/painting, Sophia will create a sketch which details content, composition and layout. With this sketch, you start to see what your mural/painting will look like. ($50 fee for this service, if Sophia is hired for the job the free will be credited from the final price of of the project.) 

 

Once the details are agreed on Sophia will paint the mural/painting in her studio or on site.

 

 

To get started on a mural/painting commission, please email Sophia here with your ideas and photos. 

Once everything is agreed on ​Half payment will be due before beginning the process and the reminder upon completion.

 

Looking forward to working together!

ARTIST STATEMENT

My journey as an artist began at a young age growing up in a Greek-American family and living off the coast of West Africa. My inspiration comes from my travels, nature, surf and local culture. Since I was constantly traveling as a child, I don’t really identify with one place or culture. I am on a constant journey and my art is a product of that journey. Some call my work Surf Art, Beach Art, Yoga Art and more. To me it's my art, my emotions and what I am going through at the time. My process starts with patterns, words, numbers, letters, and multiple layers of color washes and various mediums with an image evolving from the background. I love creating local beach imagery in Texas and imagery based on my travels and local surf culture. The best part of being an artist is seeing someone feel a connection with a piece knowing that it takes them somewhere or a moment in time that I captured of them. Seeing that excitement and smile on their face is the best feeling to me as an artist.
