I am so pleased with my wonderful ocean beach scene which Sarah painted on the garage wall. It brightens up the wall, my day and everyone that walks by and looks at it. Sarah was a true professional worked outside in very cold weather and just carried on with the painting. More...

Sarah's work is nothing short of utterly stunning, and so far from all 7 people who've been in my computer room to see it, she's got a 100% hit rate for gushing compliments on her work. I would happily recommend Sarah to any and all seeking a mural painted. I went through 26 quotes, combing the first several pages of multiple google searches, and am thrilled I settled on Sarah to do the work. The price and completion time were very reasonable (and best of all the quotes) and the frequent communication throughout the project ensured lots of updates and a finish that was just as desired. My computer room looks amazing for her efforts, and if I ever need a second mural I will for definite be a returning customer. More...

Mural Painting

Absolutely amazing artist. Communication great from start to finish and worked perfectly with me to come up with a Harry Potter wall mural that wasn't too scary but more enchanting and exactly what a wanted. I would highly recommend Charlotte designs as from start to finish the process was smooth and exactly what i needed as i had never hired an artist before and she worked with me step by step to ensure a great end product. Would have her back in a heart beat. More...

I got in touch with Sarah after searching for someone who could do a unique baby wall mural. We considered doing something ourselves but felt that the skill involved, the variety of paints and the time/energy whilst trying to organise everything else for our baby just didnt make sense when someone so talented could create us something special that we'd keep/look at for a couple+ years. After discussing with her what we'd like, sending a photo of the room & some images of characters we wanted, Sarah came up with a gorgeous concept really taking on board the words "calm, neutral, newborn nursery" (and Totoro & the whole Japanese theme!)On the day she arrived and cracked on with it. What she put on the wall was so much more full of life/skill than could be seen on a draft design and really blew me away by the little strokes of detail that went into everything. From the tiny dots of the eyes, the little flecks of grass on the mountains, the varied shades of colour - couldn't be happier that we commissioned Sarah for something so special.Would highly recommend to anyone for anything! Blown away by how "on the job" things could be tweaked/added and felt so included in the process!Thank you so much !! More...

We asked Sarah to paint some murals for our Dementia Group in our Care Home to brighten up the walls and change the environment . She did a great job the residents & staff loved her work . Sarah was great to have about the group, she worked around us and showed a caring nature towards our residents chatting to them & involving them. Nothing was to much trouble for Sarah either, as some pictures where changed and bits added at the last minute. We were all sorry to see her leave when she`d finished . But we look forward to having her back to paint more murals in the future. More...

Sarah has just finished an amazing transport mural for my twin 3 year old boys. The whole process from initial chat through to completed mural has been easy and fun. I was particularly impressed at how Sarah took time to find out about my boys interests and talk to them at their level to incorporate their personalities and likes into the design. Sarah captured all the 'must haves' we discussed plus so much more than I could have imagined or expected. Seeing the mural develop from pencil marks to finished master piece has been worth every penny. Thank you Sarah, we couldn't be happier! Jo and her boys! More...

We were looking some some unusual murals for our Business Parlour in Bedford. The Parlour has a Victorian theme with an industrial edge and Sarah immediately related to the kind of look we were trying to achieve. The Victorian portraits that Sarah painted on the wall were absolutely fantastic. Our clients comment on them most days and find it hard to believe they were actually painted freehand! We've even had one of her designs made into a cushion to match the portraits. On a personal note Sarah is an absolute pleasure to deal with, she's personable yet professional and we love working with her! More...

We were looking at ways to brighten up our village hall and raise money to develop the facilities. Sarah came and took photos to create a beautiful scene of the outside of the hall with a tree in the foreground and the village in the background. The mural is absolutely stunning on it's own and best of all we have leaves, apples and animals which can be sponsored to raise awareness of the developments and some funds too! With each addition of leaves the tree takes on a new lease of life. So many people love the idea and leaves and apples are in high demand. Thank you, Sarah! X More...

Q&As

I do believe I have the best job in the world. I take a blank wall (or ceiling, or door, or floor) and turn it into something different.
Whether that is an advertisement for a business
A visual reminder for a dementia patient
An educational tool for a teacher
A celebration of a significant event
A fundraising project for a charity
Or a magical world for a child
Every mural I paint makes a difference to everyone that comes into contact with it.

I am a trained interior designer and used murals extensively when I was designing as they are a very cost effective way of decorating spaces in a unique and spectacular way. So after I had my children, I decided to mural their rooms as I believe passionately in the effect of the environment on our well being. I then started to paint murals for children before expandong into schools, care homes and businesses in 2008.

The world is not overrun with mural artists, as it is a very difficult and niche skill, but it is still quite easy to find someone who will copy a picture onto a wall for you. That is not what I do. Every mural I paint is designed specifically for my client, so that it is perfect for them. Also, as trained interior designer, i will ensure that it works with the other elements in the room and that the colours are perfect. Why would you have someone elses mural painted when you can have your own. My murals last a very long time, because they have been well thought out and not just copied.
