I have been an artist with my own mural painting company for 12 years. Prior to this, I painted billboards and did commercial and graphic art. I have a total of 25 years experience in the art world. My specialty is murals but I am also proficient in faux finish techniques including Venetian Plaster, Metallic, Tuscan Glazes, Marble, Wood Grain, Old World, Limestone, and Animal Prints. My latest work has been a children's book illustration and the pediatric unit of a hospital for the Ronald McDonald Foundation. I am looking forward to many new projects and adventures including bringing my son, Michael Roberts, into the business. He recently studied visual arts at UNCSA for two years and is an excellent artist.
