Passion. Insight. Experience.
Hi. I’m Darlene Kisur. I was born and raised in Welland, Ontario. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I can recall playing in the mud and making mud pies and doing the sketching exercise they use to run in the newspaper every week. Although my formal education is in business, I took art courses all along the way in portraits, painting, drawing, sculpting and more.
Eventually I was asked to paint a mural in a friend’s salon. Once I painted the mural, I was sold!
I absolutely loved the freedom that came with painting on such a large canvas. Since then, I’ve painted close to 300 murals.
I now specialize in murals but also portraits, logo design and a spattering of other painted forms.
I approach each project with a sense of adventure, inspired by the world around me, my clients and my sons. Each design is unique and personal. Repetition would be easier but would not motivate the artist within.
My projects are recognized for their quality designs. level of detail, timely and professional execution. I continue to learn, develop and stretch myself as an artist.
Let me create something just for you!
I am also a mom of these two gorgeous boys. They continue to be my inspiration, motivation and my world. They have talents all their own and it’s a pleasure to watch them grow into fabulous, fun, intelligent, contributing members of society.
I've had a paint brush in my hand for 35 years and have had some wonderful opportunities.
Experience has taught me the best way to approach a project.
Put the Client First.
Listening is key to tapping into a client’s heart and thoughts in order to give them an art piece that is personal to them.
I learn from my clients and I continue on-going learning of new skills, techniques and products that best serve the project.
I create a custom design based on what I’ve heard and learned to provide a unique art experience.
