The Illustrated Wall is a team of two artists, Ann Ladd and Marie McCann. We create original, custom art for walls, furniture, floors and canvas. We have our individual styles and yet can also work in tandem to create art that is unique. Our projects range from full scale wall murals to painted furniture and framed paintings. We bring walls to life with paint. Find out what we can do for you with a free consultation.
Murals for institutions and private residence
Plain walls are transformed into story book images by The Illustrated Wall. Ann and Marie work both independently and collaboratively to create custom art for each unique situation.
A decorative motif can be executed free hand or by the use of a stencil. The motif can be inspired by a design element present in the room, such as in a painting, a textile or a treasured object.
Faux finishing and Glazing
Glazes can be applied over flat paint to achieve faux wood grain, faux marbling, faux leather and many other beautiful effects. It can be brushed on, rolled on and ragged off. A metallic glaze can be a subtle way to bring elegance to a room, casting a delicate metallic shimmer that changes with the light.
Floors, “well-loved” furniture, and new items can be re-invented as objects of beauty. We can create a decorative pattern that is unique and yet relates directly to other motifs in the room.
A consultation in the client’s home is the best way to begin any project. We see the space, understand how it is used, measure for square footage, and see how the space relates to adjoining rooms.
Consultations are free within a 30 mile radius of White Plains, New York. For consultations beyond 30 miles, there may be a small charge proportional to the distance and time required for travel. Let us know your location, and we'll let you know if there is a fee.
Designs for Murals
Some styles of mural can be created spontaneously on the walls, with some discussion of content and direction. For more complex murals, preliminary drawings are created. These drawings enable the client to see approximately what it is that we plan to do and can help determine the cost of the mural. The design can be modified to fit the client’s budget.
Once we agree upon a design, you will know in advance - and in writing - exactly how much your mural will cost, and this price will include all labor, materials, and anything else relevant to the creation of the mural.
We charge a token fee of $350 to create drawings for murals. This price includes two revisions. Designs for exceptionally large murals or complex may cost more - usually 10% of the projected cost.
Cost of Murals
Murals may be either simple or extremely detailed and this is reflected in the cost. While very simple murals can cost as little as $20 per square foot, but many will be in the range of $30 to $50 per square foot. There is a minimum fee of $750 for any mural.
To calculate the charge for a mural by The Illustrated Wall, measure your wall and multiply the height times the width. Multiply this number by $20. Your mural will cost at least this much. The only way to reduce this cost would be to reduce the amount of square footage to be painted. Remember, the consultation is FREE! We can customize a plan for your budget!
