"Sugar & Spice" Nursery Mural by Charleston Muralist- Michele Levani

Two years ago, I was commissioned by a client to do a nursery mural for their little boy. They wanted me to design a mural around the nursery rhyme, "What Are Little Boys Made of?" or "Snips & Snails". So I created a room with life size little boys at play including puppies and snails all around the room. (You can check it out from a previous blog- )
They loved it! So, they commissioned my services again, but this time for their new little girl, Sophie. They left the theme up to me this time, which I felt was a "no brainer"... I wanted to paint a "Sugar & Spice" Nursery Mural. They were enthused at the idea.

Here it is from blank canvass, sketched design and finished product. Enjoy the transformation!

I usually buy a small gift for my client with a thank you card-

Here's their little boy, Bentley, enjoying his "Snips & Snails" Nursery Mural today. He plays with the puppies and his fish! This is the part of what I do that brings me overwhelming joy!
