Pic16 Venetian View
Sitting in the dining room of this home, it's as if you are gazing through three arches to take in the tranquil sight of the Grand Canal in Venice, an illusion created by Sandy Kimura so that a real-life vacation experience of dining on the Canal could be relived again and again. By applying a faux-finish look of age to the walls, the artist added extra warmth and drama.
Pic18 An Invitation
A closer look at the Venetian View shows amazing detail of the gondolas. The realism of the gondolas seem to invite you to step in for a ride down the grand canal.
Pic22 Overall View
A view that shows how well the mural blends everything together in the room.
Pic20 Windowless Wall
The view is opened up to another dimension with the windows in this ordinary basement with no windows, a foundation wall consisting of concrete block, rock, wood and formed concrete was transformed into a visual delight. Seeing is not necessarily believing when it comes to trompe l' oeil. The rock wall and windows tamper with perception by tricking the eye to believe they are real. The view is opened up to another dimension with the windows while the stone wall adds interest and warmth to the room.
Pic24 Unique Foyer
In this foyer a Kentucky scene is portrayed in a monochromatic look with the color scheme of a rich coral tone. This soft look added detail and interest to each wall as it flows from wall to wall filling the foyer in a grand scale.
Pic25 Unique Foyer- Staircase View
In this foyer a Kentucky scene is portrayed in a monochromatic look with the color scheme of a rich coral tone. This soft look added detail and interest to each wall as it flows from wall to wall filling the foyer in a grand scale.
Pic10 Italian Ambiance
For this master bath in a condominium, Sandy chose sepia tones to present a soothing panorama of the Italian countryside. Around the Jacuzzi’s water spout, she painted a face, its mouth being where the water emerges. Adding dolphins on either side of the face and other touches, the artist gave this wall the look of a fountain one would find in Italy.
Pic13 Dining Serenity
On the dining-room walls of this remodeled 1901 home Sandy Kimura's mural delights diners with a serene view of the surrounding grounds. Song birds such as bright-red cardinals add splashes of color to the graceful branches of trees. White-tail deer dot the landscape. Flocks of turkeys roam the woodlands. Even the house itself is pictured.
Pic14 Grand Entrance
A master at trompe l'oeil, a painting technique meant to 'fool the eye,' Sandy Kimura transformed the foyer of a private home, making a memorable first impression. The sweeping green drapes appear to be stitched from luxurious fabric though they are actually applied with paint. A view of the pool and the grounds beyond can be seen through ornate iron doors, all an illusion painted on flat closet doors. Completing this artful illusion are walls that seem to be made of stone and a ceiling that gives the feeling of a glass atrium.
Pic7 Soaring Elegance
In a beautifully appointed living room with soaring ceilings, Sandy Kimura's tranquil scene of the Grand Canal in Venice carries the grandeur of the room to new heights. Positioned over the mantle, this exquisite acrylic on canvas (12' tall, 6' wide) was painted in the artist's studio and then attached to the wall under white-trim molding.

Pic1 Musicians Unite
Members of the family, their pets, and a few well-known people compose the orchestra that Sandy Kimura artfully painted on a curved wall behind the staircase of a private home.
Pic2 Bookcase Accent
Muralist Sandy Kimura employed the technique trompe l'oeil to create an interesting feature on the wall alongside a staircase, painting a faux bookcase around an actual window. The artist personalized the space by including books and pictures on the 'shelves' that had meaning for the home owners.
Pic6 The Wine Cellar
A typical under the stairs closet was transformed into a new space for wine storage. The client had a wrought iron door made and wine storage shelves installed. The aged stone wall and aged plaster wall with the 'wine cellar' sign also aged gave this brilliant space its character and is now a unique focal point of this home.
Pic4 Park Grande Condominiums
This new highrise is located in beautiful historic Cherokee Park in Louisville. A monochromatic mural was painted in soft golden tones to compliment the marble floor of the Park Grande Lobby. The panoramic mural shows many areas and statues from Cherokee Park.
Pic33 Fish Fountain
The mural for this French style master bath adds color and interest around the oversized tub. The large stone urn is flanked with two cherubs and full of beautiful flowers. The background is a garden like setting with the soft blue sky arching over to the opposite wall.
Pic38 French Garden
A fish fountain in metallic gold accents this area of the master tub with the water flowing from the fish's mouth appearing to be filling the tub.
Pic39 Powder Room
This elegant guest powder room has a French flair with the panel painted mural over the toilet. Metallic gold enhances the mural and coordinates with the gold sink and mirror.
Pic5 Over the Wall
Employing a monochromatic color scheme, artist Sandy Kimura painted a faux rock wall that invites you to peer over and beyond to view a calming softly muted scene—a mural offering unique beauty to the homeowner's wall.
Pic66 Wine Tasting Room/Wine Cellar
The concrete floor was painted to appear as bricks and terracotta tile. An angled wall depicts another courtyard through a stone archway. The other walls show wear with their crumbling plaster and exposed bricks.
