Murals

Jessica wants to paint your walls!

(And your windows, and your benches, and anything else you think you’d like jazzed-up or re-invented)

Commission Jessica to do a store window display, your child’s bedroom, or the wall behind your office desk. She’s got templates with fixed prices you can choose from, or you can pitch your idea to Jessica for a personalized quote. Jessica’s a Yes Woman. She’s got experience working with all sorts of people— including young children with special needs, teens who want dragons on their walls and big-vision artist types and entrepreneurs. She’s open to collaborating on work and spearheading a group effort too!

Jessica’s dream is to paint giant murals on the sides of old buildings and wake them up with colour, drama, narrative. What’s your dream?

Jessica Hiemstra is not just smart, she’s good-smart. I know this because she helped me when I needed her advice, and I’m forever grateful.

 

- Joe Fiorito is a journalist, a novelist and a poet working in Toronto. Jessica helped him with a book launch at the Revue Cinema.

Jessica makes things. Wonderful, joyous, lovely and free things. Ideas and images, stuff and magic. And she'll make them for you, based on your ideas but processed through her imagination and made real by her talented hands. She is a delight to work with. A rare combination of artist and professional business person.

Jessica designed the decoration on the soundboard of my clavichord.  I told her what I loosely had in mind - a grasshopper, grass, a flower and a dragonfly - and she carefully researched native species and came up with something that was at once bold, elegant and playful, and which complemented the geometry of the instrument perfectly.  Both the instrument builder and I were most impressed, and the final product is spectacular.

 

- David Derry had Jessica paint his clavichord.

Jessica Hiemstra is a maker of things who makes things work. Give her an idea and [...] she thinks hard as she seeks the stillness of conviction, and then moves with a rush of intuitions. If that’s too fancy a way of putting it, every time I’ve worked with her she has come up with a fresh way of looking at a problem and then she has solved the problem, to my satisfaction, and to the satisfaction of all participants. Problem solved with decisive grace. Still too fancy. Well, just hire her and the job’ll get done and you’ll be more than happy with the results. 

 

- Barry Callaghan is a publisher whom Jessica has helped with many a book launch.
