Day 2 progress at St Peter's Hospital... Another coat on all walls (and a third in some places) and 30 foot of sky and clouds ❤️ 16 hours
The planning and creation of this mural was particularly special and moving for me as an artist. The client I had painted this for was someone I had done work for in the past. She had called me after some time and we caught up. I learned that she had experienced numerous losses of loved ones within a short time. She needed to do something to express her emotions. Art was going to be her cartharsis. She had a "frame" built on her ceiling and wanted it to be open to the sky to let the sunlight in. I wanted the sky mural to honor those loved ones with another level of meaning. I suggested that I paint white doves, one for each of those special people who passed and to have them fly towards the light of the sun. ❤️
Progress shot. This is the start of an entire room mural for the smallest’s bedroom. It’s in part of the cat slide roof and the only windows are velux so she decided (ok with some parental persuasion) to have a sky on the ceiling and the slope. An awesome scenic artist is doing this for me and then we’ll then have grass and flowers on the skirtings when I get round to painting them. She also wants swans! 😬 I can’t draw them so anyone seen any lovely decals #themeroom #skymural #ceilingmural #kidsbedroom #interiordesign #prettygirlsroom #nurserydecor
I LOVE working under this ceiling mural. It called to me from a plain regular ceiling asking to be brought out. It took weeks to paint, layers being discovered in subtle ways. It changed my life, igniting the physically creative side I had put to the side for years. I always embody *some* kind of creative something (face reading, energetic teaching, intuitive work, and body work), but this - this (figuratively) opened the heavens to connect with something else. And tonight, I’m creating new covers for 5 more upcoming botanically printed books. Love working under a glorious portal of blue sky. My studio is my happy place. -

AFK has an opening in mid-November for a mural in the Los Angeles/Orange County area! DM us for a quote.
This little princess wanted a dreamy pink & purple sky in the small alcove above her bed - like a secret den 😍 It would also work as a full ceiling or on a wall.
I really enjoyed blending the colours, it looks so pretty, I'm struggling to capture it fully on camera as it definitely looks better in reality
