Muralist Design Creation
kimmie can design and create a mural for your home or commercial office, nursery, child's bedroom, your fitness studio, your school hallway or cafeteria, or any place you have an empty wall that needs transformed. kimmie can create both indoor and outdoor murals.
Mural Design Process
Send kimmie your inspiration and let her know the wall square footage dimensions. She will draft out a design for your approval and send an estimated completion time. kimmie will never begin painting on a wall until you have full confidence and love the look of the design. kimmie will create as many versions as it takes until you are happy.
There are two ways kimmie creates murals. One is to take the design and create a full sketch on paper to then project onto the wall and trace the image for accuracy and detail precision. The other is to use a large scale grid method where the paper version will be measured out to match the square footage of the wall. She then will grid the wall and draw by hand what goes into each square. In either method, kimmie uses acrylic and paints by hand.
Using high-quality paint to withstand both time and even direct sunlight your mural will last for years to come. kimmie also varnishes the final mural for ultimate protection from dirt, dust, and hand prints.
kimmie charges $26.45 by the square foot. This includes all materials needed, time to design the mural, drive time, and time to create the mural on site.
To secure the job, a down payment must be received and this will be deducted from your total square footage price. Clients typically pay in installments each time kimmie arrives to work, or you can pay in full prior to the final painting session. Each session is usually 4 hours of time unless otherwise discussed.
Discover how murals can be utilized in the following spaces.
- Office buildings

Game Room Mural
kimmie was hired by PPG Industries to help revamp the game room at The Boys & Girls Clubs Greater Houston. This was a paint-by-number mural where PPG volunteers would come in and paint the spaces as a community building activity. kimmie designed and engineered the two wall panels so those with no painting skills or experience could successfully paint the wall. kimmie developed the design using game elements the kids at the club enjoy playing, created the outline on the wall, put numbers in each space that associated with the correct paint color, and then assisted while the volunteers painted the wall.

School Cafeteria Mural
In this mural example, kimmie incorporated all of the school's fine arts. This school is a fine arts magnet school in Aldine ISD and offers students Dance, Drama, PE, Art, and Violin. The school is a pre-k and kindergarten campus named Reece Academy so kimmie took each letter of the name and represented each of the fine arts. R is a ballerina to represent Dance. E shows music notes to represent Music. The next E is a violin to represent Violin. C is a paint palette to represent Art. The final E is humpty dumpty on a wall to represent Drama.
Fitness Studio Mural: Chalk Wall
Depending on the size and level of detail will depend on how many sessions kimmie will need to complete the mural. Some murals, like chalk walls, only need one session of 2-3 hours to complete. Other murals, like nurseries and children's rooms, may need multiple sessions of 3-4 hours in order to complete. kimmie always works with you and your schedule to arrive at times that are most convenient.
Nursery Mural: Classic Pooh
This Classic Pooh nursery mural took six sessions to complete. Each session ranged from two and a half to four hours. First, the surface was gridded and primed. Gridding allows kimmie to take a smaller image and scale it to a large wall with precision and accuracy. Layer by layer the mural was completed with the final outlines and details added in the last session. kimmie always protects non-painted wall surfaces with quality painters tape as well as uses drop clothes to protect flooring.
Restaurant Ceiling Mural:
This ceiling mural was created for a Pho restaurant in North Central Houston. The owner wanted clouds painted so customers could look up and feel like they are outside. Many have said this reminds them of a mural seen in Las Vegas.
Child's Bedroom Mural: Space Themed
kimmie worked with a client to design and create a mural for a child's bedroom. The client wanted his son to have a space themed bedroom that included a rocket and also the solar system. Knowing the room dimensions kimmie drafted where each design would go for the client to approve. Once the design was finalized kimmie went on site to paint the mural.
