Industrial-Inspired Abstract Mural

Grand Trunk Gallery & Guesthouse
20ish x 7 ft approx.

Owners, Marilyn & Daryll wanted some sort of reference to trains / train parts (hence Grand Trunk in the name) but represented in an abstract way for this staircase mural.
Creating this mural was a real push outside of my usual colourful palette, as Marilyn requested a black-only design. It was an epic journey nailing down this process and I totally love how it turned out.

Marilyn & Daryll's Review:

"Claire succeeded in creating an amazing mural installation at the Grand Trunk Guest House & Gallery. We discussed the concept of a Black & White, Graphic, Industrial themed, Modern Mural, to trail up the stairs of our 1920's guesthouse. It was important to capture the time and give a nod to the railway, without being too much about trains. She researched ideas, presented them to me and we talked through what we felt would work the best. Then she got busy and created our wonderful mural. The guesthouse is funky/artistic and classy, and her work gives off the exact vibe I was looking for. She was wonderful to work with, easy to give input to and above all super talented. I am delighted with the end results! It does exactly what it was intended to do, it welcomes you into a very thoughtful space, leads your eyes up the stairs and makes a wonderful backdrop for our guests to take pictures, and it makes a wonderful promotional piece for marketing both the Guest House and the Art Gallery." - Marilyn & Daryll Price
