Welcome to my website and thank you for stopping in!
Wallworks murals was established in 1998 by Karen Calcagno.
That's me, and I live in one of the best (and yep, sometimes the weirdest) cities in the world. I've lived in Portland all of my life and love the rhythm of this city. Its changing seasons, abundance of beauty and creative vibes provide endless inspiration to me. I am fortunate. Years of practice and opportunity have opened doors for me to enjoy and paint hundreds of local murals and paintings. From teeny tiny to gigantic projects, for babies and for art collectors.
I met Janet MacGregor in 2003 and thereafter a friendship of mutual admiration was formed and we began painting together on our large scale projects. We have so much fun and will most likely continue in this crazy business until we can't climb ladders anymore.
Wallworks murals has the greatest appreciation for all of our clients. Residential, Commercial and Public Places.
Those who know exactly what they want, and those who would like for us to help them design and create something personal and fabulous for their space. Either way, the consultation is free and there is never a first design fee. To begin a mural project we prefer to meet with you and see the space in person but if you'd rather, photos can be sent in to start with. If you are interested in a custom canvas, the artwork is produced in studio and shipped anywhere in the USA. Fine art prints and greeting cards, rendered from my original paintings are available for purchase. Just click the "shop" button in the menu to take you there. All work is done in acrylic paints, glazes and other secret stuff and backed with my 100% guarantee to your satisfaction.
