About Me


Portland mural artist, Melissa Barrett, grew up in Montana and moved to the Portland area to raise her family in 1987. She has been delighting people with her mural painting and art since 2000. She loves to paint and feels extremely blessed at having had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people along the way.

Notes from Melissa

Getting Started:

If your proposed painting project is in the Greater Portland, Salem OR or Vancouver WA area, feel free to call or email me to schedule an onsite consultation. I occasionally accept commissions elsewhere for the right project. Many questions can be answered by email if you provide a basic description of the space. Include approximate wall measurements including ceiling height, number of walls, wall texture (smooth, orange peel, rough, etc.) and a description of your mural ideas and theme. I will try to provide you with guidance, suggestions and a ballpark price range.

I am also available to create custom wedding aisle runners and party decorations!

Pricing is based on estimated work time and materials. Factors considered in pricing include: Complexity of mural, amount of detail, size, surface, ease of access, amount of prep work and travel. Full payment is due the day of project completion and can be made by cash, check or Paypal.

Saving Money:

For those wishing to cut costs, options are available. Patching, priming and often times the base coat can be applied by the homeowner. It is important to discuss these options with me first for the proper selection of materials and application.
