Mary initiated and implemented a pilot mural for Skyline High School that set the standard for all future murals at the high school. She worked with several students to design and paint a 10-foot by 15-foot mural in a highly visible area of Skyline High School. The mural is a huge success and our community is willing and excited about funding future murals. Mary’s murals are especially impressive because they demonstrate her uncanny ability to combine aesthetics, technical skill, and creativity to produce unique visual images. She has an outstanding work ethic and is dedicated to finishing what she starts.
'We absolutely love the mural Mary has created for our little boy’s playroom. Mary was a pleasure to work with and her artistic talent and resourcefulness are truly impressive. She listened carefully to our ideas, looked at photos from our travels to Southeast Asia, conducted her own research into exotic temples, flowers and animals and translated everything into what is both a perfect reflection of our vision as well as a gorgeous original piece of art."
I truly cannot express how much I love my ceiling mural. I commissioned TreeTown Murals to paint my 600 square foot master bedroom ceiling with a sunset. I described my vision and gave the artists complete artistic license to interpret it. The subtlety of cloud and color makes me confident that I will never tire of this artwork. They were respectful of my home and habits. I hardly knew they were on site and they left everything the way you found it. All around a beautiful experience. I am a fan of TreeTown Murals! Thank You.
As executive director of the Chelsea Center for the Arts, I selected Mary Thiefels to coordinate a mural project celebrating Chelsea's 175th Anniversary. Knowing our tight schedule, Mary hit the ground running. She attended committee meetings, invited the public to participate in the conception of the mural. Mary handled herself professionally, tactfully, and creatively when absorbing the input of so many people who are passionate about their community. I would hire Mary again in a heartbeat for future projects, and she is always my first recommendation for mural work. Her designs are lively and her choice of colors are attention-getting. I know you be quite pleased with her work, her attitude, and her collaborative spirit.
