I have had the benefit of creating numerous murals over the years from small images in hallways to large images over full size walls. My experiences began as a teenager when I made murals  in the school hallways, for formal events, and designing and painting stage backdrops for the theater department. I painted murals for family members and friends in their homes. My art developed into a profession, and my jobs got bigger.  I have painted entire rooms from floor to ceiling in nature images as well as large pieces mounted to walls. I work with the desires of the client and select the designs, colors, images, and feelings they wish to enjoy in the space.   Contact me to inquire about mural or design work in your private or public spaces.  It costs nothing to talk about a mural plan you may have in mind, and quotes are free.  I can help you to develop a great custom design.




Recently I have completed the project of redesigning the Reidsville Teen Center great room in 2018 where I incorporated small murals and a floor to ceiling galaxy game room.  I completed a large privately commissioned public mural in downtown Reidsville, NC in 2018.   I completed an interactive mural on the entrance wall to the Rockingham County Public Library in Reidsville, NC in 2019.  This angel wings mural includes a quote from Plato.  I completed a commission project of a painted sculpture design for the HeArt of the Gardens Exhibit, summer 2019, for Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, NC.  The exhibit opened in July 1, 2019 and runs through October.  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 video updates there.  I post WIP, new, upcoming, and completed projects on this website.  Visit my social media pages to keep tabs on my latest projects.
