I am fascinated by color.

Every project I complete is a study in the complexity, depth, psychology of color and how to manage, mimic and manipulate it. Whether it is a straightforward faux finish, a complex trompe l’oeil scene, or my original artwork, the color becomes the central character that leads every project adventure. Color is my inspiration, my teacher, my joy.

Mindy was born in Tacoma and has lived in many Northwest cities, such as Gig Harbor, Bellingham, Seattle, and Portland, along with a short residency in Nome, Alaska. After graduating with a BFA from Pacific Lutheran University, Mindy started a one-woman decorative painting business in 1993.  Her specialty is murals, faux finishes, trompe l’oeil, custom paintings and original artwork within homes and businesses - mostly around the Northwest, but some as far away as Oregon, California, Arizona, and Hawaii.  She has most recently shifted focus to designing and painting large-scale exterior-building murals.
