"Kids Names"

In a re-modeled residence, I was asked to paint decorative wall border elements using the names of the children as subject matter.

Each name picks up the paint colors in the bedroom and adjoining bathroom, and conveys the individual personality of the child.

Chloe likes roses.

A light switch design plays off the mini-mural design.

Emmi likes daisies.

And what little girl doesn't like butterflies?

Emilio has a beachy-pirate theme in his room, so the long board with a skull and crossbones made perfect sense.

I tried to give it wood grain and three-dimensional look, and make a "surf logo" out of his name.

The light switch palm tree and wave is a perfect compliment.
