Trompe-L'oeil - Chatswood
Background and Testimonial

We had been keen to progress a Trompe-L'oeil in our backyard for some time yet didn't know where to start. A quick search on the internet unfolded a couple of options yet the Becsmart website really caught our eye. The work shown on the Becsmart website was exceptional, varied and very much in keeping of what we were looking for so we decided to give Patricia (Trish) Smart a call.

Our first conversation was a great starting point, we agreed to send Trish some photos of our backyard and a few initial thoughts. Given Trish lives in the Blue Mountains, it was really important for her to minimise travel…to this end, it was really important for all of us that we had a clear briefing and could set Trish up for success prior to arrival. With our suite of photos, we also mocked up (via photoshop) the space and "blank canvas" we had in mind. We saved all our photos in Dropbox so Trish could easily access and download in need. This worked really well… Trish sent back 1st concepts and quotes, we were really happy and progressed to sign Trish up…. she could start in 2 weeks, all very exciting !!

The next step was for us to actually ensure the canvas was in place. This involved attaching "blue-board" to the fence, a light render and then full painting to match the outside of our house.

Then the painting began… Trish took 4 days in total to paint, split across 2 weeks. As the painting unfolded it was truly apparent how very, very talented Trish is as an artist and how very lucky we were to find her!! Trish absorbed our surroundings, the colours, foliage and overall scenery and worked hard on ensuring the painting integrated with these. Her wonderful ability to manage the large canvas and ensure the final outcome was symmetrical also took significant work. Trish was extremely flexible with adding anything we liked (particularly whimsical items like a Giraffe) and also consulted us regularly through the painting process. Trish was an absolute dream to work with and so very friendly and tidy to have about.

The final outcome has far exceeded any of our expectations. The attached case study photos highlight the sensational work yet we cannot stress enough how wonderful it looks in real life!!

We wholeheartedly recommend Becsmart and Patricia Smart in particular and are very happy to offer a direct reference at any time. It has been such a pleasure meeting and working with such a very special and talented artist.

Children's Dentistry

The extraordinarily talented Patricia Smart & Rebecca Murray of ‘Becsmart Murals’ have contributed greatly to the success of Castle Hill Children’s Dentistry for almost 2 decades.

From the moment a child enters our waiting room, the welcoming feature mural transports the child into an imaginary wonderland with its fairy tale castle, flying dragon & unicorn.

The jungle, marine, Australiana & farmyard themed brightly painted treatment surgeries help to make the child’s first dental visit a happy & fun-filled experience. Our greatest feeling of pride is

when an initially apprehensive child leaves with a smile & is keen to return.

The creative expertise of Patricia & Rebecca has made our work environment a total pleasure & a joy. We cannot recommend them & their exquisite art work highly enough.
