I’ve never given much thought to commissioning a mural for my children’s room. I suppose I’ve been guilty of stereotyping the genre – imagining them to involve hackneyed scenes from fairytales and science fiction. But my recent find of Melbourne-based artist Jane Reiseger has challenged that.
Specialising in line drawings and paintings, Jane creates unique playful creatures that are elegant and modern. Her lines are simple – innocent but professional – and colours are natural and liveable.
To start the process, Jane will come for an initial visit to see your room and its layout, and discuss the position of the mural and any particulars you’re after (colours, animals, objects, poems, names and so on). In a follow up visit, she will show you sketches and concepts and explore colour selection with you. The next time, Jane will bring her paint brushes and paint your walls!
Commissioning Jane to do a unique mural will cost approximately $750.
