I create murals from small designs to large images over full size walls both interior and exterior.  Prices vary accordingly.  I have painted entire rooms from floor to ceiling in nature images as well as large pieces on panels mounted to walls or installed on objects.  I work with the desires of my private, government, and commercial clients and select the designs, colors, images, and feelings they wish to enjoy in the space.   Contact me to inquire about murals, business logos, or design work in your private or public spaces.  It costs nothing to talk about a mural plan that you may have in mind.  Local and regional site visits and price quotes are free.  Design work requires a nonrefundable payment for services up front.  Like any other contractor, muralist services require design work and quote approval, a signed contract for the work, and a deposit up front.  I can help you to develop a great custom design plan.  Be prepared to work with me on planning your mural.




In June of 2020 I completed the Tree Planter Project for the City of Reidsville, NC.  For the city's new tree planter boxes I painted 28 panels of wood using colored wood stains and sealer.  There are 14 abstract designs and 14 illustrative paintings of area flora and fauna and wildlife, and the panels have been installed on the sides of the planters.  A walk or ride along the business district of Reidsville's South Scales Street is all it takes to enjoy this public art project.  Walking is recommended to see the art and what's new downtown.


In April of 2021 I completed an extensive mural project inside the Rockingham County Animal Shelter entitled "Paws to Reflect".  Phase 1 features the portraits of animals who have been rescued and adopted through this shelter, including my own dog Phoebe.  Phase 2 of the project  is two very large interior murals featuring random dogs and cats in a colorful and contemporary street art style.  I was the recipient of an Artist Support Grant from the NC Arts Council which helped me to complete the large murals in Phase 2.  Phase 3 was completed in August 2021 adding mini murals and graphics to the lobby, adoption hall, and two offices.


Other murals done in 2020 include a floral mural at Willa Ashe Boutique in Madison, NC and a ghost sign logo mural at Lucky City Brewers in Reidsville, NC. 

In the period of June-November 2021 I am co-lead artist on one of three teams doing public art projects in Greensboro, NC.  My artists team is sponsored by TAB Arts Non Profit and Creative Greensboro and involves public art projects in Greensboro at Kings Forest Park.


I share about the process and progress of my public art projects on my Facebook page (A Life of Joy by Mary E D Ryan Art), and on Instagram (@joyfulmaryedryanart), and I do occasional video updates there. Visit my social media pages to keep tabs on my latest projects.  Just click the icons below.
