Craig Grimston painted beautiful murals in my
children's playroom and in my son's bedroom. When we met Craig,
our four year old son had just been diagnosed with Stage 4
Neuroblastoma, a very rare form of pediatric cancer with very low
survival rates. Our family was in shock, and we had little to
celebrate at that time. Craig showed up at our door with his
supplies and a wonderful smile, and brought warmth and cheer into
our home. Shortly after his arrival, a snowstorm showed up in
Dallas. We lost our power, and more importantly, our heat. But
Craig continued to work in the dark and in the freezing cold, and
completed a fantastic Little Mermaid mural in just a couple of
days. My children were ecstatic when they saw Craig's incredible
work, and they continue to enjoy their magical playroom every day.
As a mother, I will never forget the comforting presence of Craig,
and the joy that he brought our family through his amazing art.

highly recommend Craig and his company, Muralicious. The pictures
on his website, while amazing, really do not do his work justice.
My daughter has a "Tinkerbell" room and it is the most
amazing child's room I have ever seen. Craig exceeded even my most
optimistic expectations. My daughter loves her room, and it puts
me in a good mood to sit in the room with her. The characters are
so true to what they look like on the movies that every evening,
my daughter has to tell each of the characters, from Tinkerbell to
Blaze to Terrence, "Good night." I can honestly say that
I didn't feel a bit of buyer's remorse and am so proud showing off
the room to everyone who comes over. Also, Craig is not only
incredibly talented, but a genuinely wonderful person.
Mary Goodrich Nix - Dallas,
Craig Grimston is not only an amazing artist,
but a wonderful person. Craig has painted four rooms,3 niches
and one ceiling for us with more in the works. We were so
impressed with his work that we actually added more projects we
never intended to do.
When we first met Craig and saw what he was
capable of, I expected him to be very expensive based on the
experiences I've had in the past. That was not the case. He is
the most talented, reasonable artist I've ever worked with!!
We've had so many compliments on everything
Craig has done for us. From the "Tangled" scene in our
daughters room, to the theater room featuring Elvis, Marilyn and
the rest of the Hollywood crew. Craig, you have transformed our
home and brought so much warmth and comfort to the rooms and we
can't thank you enough!!
Stacia Turner - Prosper,
I just moved into my dream home and if you
can imagine, I had a vision for each room. I wanted my 5 year
old son's room to be decorated in a sailor's theme. I searched
on-line and found a picture of a compass painted on a ceiling.
It was beautiful and I wanted it, BUT, who could I find that
could do it and do it right. Well, I googled mural artists and
only a few appeared. Muralicious being one of them. I was in awe
of the work, every picture was beautiful. So I reached out to
Craig via email right away. From the first time I spoke to Craig
on the phone I felt like I already knew him.
I'm very particular about everything and I
can tell you this, Craig exceeded my expectations. The compass
is absolutely beautiful. When I show the original picture of the
compass that I found on-line to people as a reference, then I
show the one Craig did, each person has stated that they like
Craig's better. It's not only Craig's workmanship that I was
pleased with but he was available, helpful, and honest. Craig is
the epitome of professional. He was on time and he finished when
he said he would. He was such a pleasure to work with, I'm
looking around my new home to see what else I can have him

I have had the distinct pleasure of
enjoying Craig Grimston's extra-ordinary artistic skill for almost
10 years. Because of his talent and professionalism, I have
contracted Craig to paint well over twenty artistic pieces
throughout my home and workplace. These works of art range in
highly detailed ceiling/wall murals, Trompe L'oeil masterpieces
and business signs.
It is said that The world IS what
you make of it! Well, Craig Grimston's talents CAN enrich one's
day-to-day existence by providing a visual paradise that can ease
one's mind and soul.
On the Lighter side....Craig's art
is like a potato chip, it's so good you can't stop at just one!

Craig did some
wonderful artwork at my new home in 2011. What a great experience
working with a neat, creative and TOTALLY professional
artist/painter. All projects exceeded my high expectations and in
a timely manner which exemplified his efficiency and spot-on
scheduling. I love the calm/peaceful attitude and approach he
brings - such an unexpected, right experience with a vendor. I
have more painting projects looming for you! Thank you for making
how home more special,
Paula Walker -
I've never seen a wall go from plain
to simply AWESOME! I still get people when they come to visit
marvel at the murals/talented art of the guy with a paint brush. I
love my murals today as if they were just painted. It has been
approx. 5-6 years now. I loved my home murals so much that I asked
Craig to come to my church and come to my church he did! What
Craig does is more than a hobby, more than a talent it's a
Wonderful Gift from God.
Philips - Tabernacle of God, FW
Craig is an incredibly
talented artist and muralist. He has done work for all three of our
children's bedrooms and we were thrilled with the end results. He
listened and brainstormed with us prior to beginning the projects to
ensure that we would be satisfied. He offered sketches for each
room, as needed, and we were able to envision the final product
before he started. Each of our children's room are completely
unique, highlighting Craig's talent and ability to manage different
styles, tastes, and scopes. His pricing is fair, he communicates
well throughout the entire process, and he completes the art when he
says he will. We were 100% satisfied and highly recommend Craig with
Roland Ball -
I hope you will have the
pleasure of enjoying an original piece of art by Craig.
He was a joy to work with:
professional, on time, diligent, willing to sit down and talk over
fine details and additions I might have overlooked.
His price was more than
reasonable for the exceptional quality of his work and the outcome
is that I have a mural that gives me great joy whenever I see it as
well as the unexpected benefit in that it’s so realistic it makes
the room seem much larger!
Absolutely wonderful and I
would recommend him for any project large or small.
Frank - Dallas
with Craig and Muralicious was outstanding! I just love Craig's
personality and he was extremely professional, on time, exactly as
promised, worked with my budget. His work is wonderful. My son still
loves his "Galactic ship" years later. I can't say enough
kind things about Craig. He also uses and donates his time and
artistic talents for charity events.

turned an ugly garage wall by our pool into “the perfect beach”
with thatch roofed cabanas, palm trees and miles of ocean. The
detail in the palm leaves and thatched roofs are incredible. He even
incorporated an electric outlet box and cable pipe into the scene.
We have equipales. If you don’t know what they are, they’re the
table & chairs you see all over Mexico with the leather seats
and table tops and criss-crossed wooden slat bottoms. They are very
difficult to paint. We have a fishing boat anchored near the shore.
And, of course, we have that bottle of Sol waiting for us next to
the beach chair.
mural faces the west and even after 2 ½ summers the colors are
still as vibrant as when it was first painted.
work is brilliant and creative. However, and possibly as important,
he is honest, with his timelines, prices and work ethics. He is
someone you can feel safe to have access to your home.

a background, our company is a regional Home Infusion Pharmacy with
offices in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Nashville
Tennessee, and Fresno California.
I have used Craig on all of our recent expansions /remodels
of our facilities in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. I found Craig
to be very detailed, dependable and affordable as we worked together
to “create” a vision for each office.
The artwork/murals he created reflected each office’s
different location while tying together our overall company theme
and logos. Craig was
very creative in each instance and brought some unusual ideas to me
that personalized each office.

is an absolute artist with the ability to create murals that come
alive. Amazing talent. I would wholeheartedly recommend Craig for
your artistic needs!
