About Katie Francis B.A. (Hons)
I am a professional muralist and paint specialist with over thirty years experience. I began painting murals when I was a teenager, on my own wall and the walls of family and friends. After gaining a degree I set up my own business, Decoration By Design.
Over the years I have painted a variety of site specific murals, including children's and adult's bedrooms, hospital wards and corridors, a 60 x 40 ft interior wall in a church, bathrooms, exterior walls, activity centres, garden murals, swimming pools and stage sets.
I have specialised in paint effects like marbling (which I have also taught in workshops), block work and trompe l'oiel. I have applied my skills to commissions for hand painted fabrics, furniture and three dimensional pieces.
During this time I have also worked as a painter and decorator, advising clients on colour schemes and decoration. I have a keen eye for finishing touches and am an enthusiastic and responsive specialist with plenty of ideas and inspiration. I have project managed the rennovation and decoration of my own property which required skills of design and practicality so, if you require help in this area please ask me.
I believe it is vital to work closely with my clients in order to understand their requirements. I want them to be happy with my work from start to finish.
