Through color, texture, imagery and scale you can change the feel of an entire space all by the hand of a local artist.
Why bother with a framed piece when you can turn an entire wall into art?
Give a wall dimension and texture with this gradual shifting of color.
Repeating patterns can look like tile without the expense. Imagine what you can do with metallics, paint sheen and large scale geometrics!
Loving the concrete look? Want to add that modern twist to an otherwise classic space? Subtle textures and color changes can transform the walls to resemble an entirely different material.
This is great for a kid's room or a space for an adult who loves a pop of the unexpected.
Several techniques can be used to get that time-worn look in a new build.
"I was hired to create an accent wall in a handmade jewelry store located in Breckenridge. The owner knew she wanted geometric shapes and we agreed that we both loved a particular antique blue-green color. After a conversation and exchanging ideas, I suggested we incorporate some metallics under a textural plaster that resembles copper patina. She let me go to work and the results are stunning! I love that she gave me artistic license with this project. Using the information she provided about the merchandise and the mood of the space, we worked together to create an accent that customers can't stop commenting on!" - Devon Sharon
This project was done in the Yosemite area in California. The development includes a building that provides bike rentals and local recreation information. The mural was a map of the area with highlighted points of interest, such as Grant Grove, Kings Canyon, Mono Lake and nearby rivers and fishing holes. These spots were painted as individual vignettes on an overall map background with a watercolor feel.
The sign was built to resemble the National Parks signage seen at trail-heads. This piece was built by the artist and personalized to show the distances from the Riverstone Lodge to local area shopping, hikes and landmarks.
It's always exciting to work in model homes. I've worked with Chameleon for years and truly enjoy bringing their ideas to life!
So many people walk through the space imagining what it would be like to live there. Hand-painted details really make the dream complete.
Give me your inspiration, your ideas and the canvas and let me create that final touch you've been looking for.
I want to be challenged! With over 20 years of experience, I know I can create something above and beyond your expectations. If you can imagine it, I can make it happen.
Send a picture of your space and I can give you a digital mock-up of the proposed project.
Not sure what you want? Give me some direction, and I'll give you ideas.
Call or email to discuss availability. We can walk the project and discuss possible directions. Serving most of the state of Colorado and select areas in California.
Devon grew up in Southern California with a mother who was in the interior design industry. She started early, working with her mom and eventually expanded to other firms. Making a living throughout college as a decorative painter, her work ranged from model homes to commercial and residential. All the while, Devon was being trained as a classical figurative painter in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Cal State University Long Beach.
After becoming bored by the same faux finishes and small decorative jobs here and there, she decided not to continue this profession when she moved to Colorado and then NYC.
"I wanted to focus mainly on my figurative work, but most painting stopped when my children were born. Now that I am back in Colorado and my kids are in school, I am picking up the brush again. I had such a great time painting in DonLo Mercantile because it was a unique and fun project. I got to be creative and the response has been so positive by people who come in to the shop. Many people who never thought of such a technique are wanting the same thing in their home. It was such a pleasure to create, how can I refuse to take on more of the same?"
