My name is Michele Russell. A native of Greenwich, CT, I grew up loving all things expressive and artistic (writing, painting, photography, theater), and I’ve made these endeavors my profession and passion for nearly all my life. My photographs, stories, and essays have appeared in numerous publications and my painted canvases, murals, and photographic artwork reside in homes, business, and private collections from Los Angeles to Paris.

One day I bypassed my canvases and began painting on a blank wall in our living room. I painted the most comforting beach I could imagine living on. That was my first real mural and the interest it inspired was the beginning of a new business, “Mural Mural On The Wall.”

Years later I’m still painting people’s dream locations and favorite characters on the walls of their homes and businesses, adding formal decorative elements or fun filled whimsy to their lives.

My love for my work and my sincere interest in bringing joy to my clients is reflected in each mural I create.
