Paul Wilson started making wall graphics in 2006 part-time. During the day he worked as a publication designer and in the evenings and weekends he created designs for home decor and advertising. In 2007, after receiving a promotion at his job he made the decision to take the plunge and go full-time with his business.
"While the stability of a paycheck was nice, the satisfaction from my job just wasn't there. When I was promoted I was no longer doing day to day design work but was overseeing designers, budgets and sitting through meetings that were endless. I lasted nine months and decided I had to get back to full time design."
Since going full time Paul has increased the number of designs he offers in his Etsy shop (www.wilsongraphics.etsy.com) to over 170 and has a couple hundred rough ideas in the works. His work has been featured in Romantic Country and mentioned in Mary Jane's Farm.
"If I had one bit of advice to offer to creative, crafty people it's do something with your talent, find a way to make a living with it and it will be more than just a job and you'll have both an income and the satisfaction of doing what you love."
The decals are easily applied and many can be repositioned. Several are also available in a wide variety of colors. Here are some examples.
The Poppy Fields design will work well just above baseboards and trim:
The silhouetted Virtue Series is quite charming as they urge kindness and other good manners.
You may also choose from Vintage Odd Canvas Prints such as “Elizabeth Was Such a Wall Flower”
The "I Can Fly Woman" expresses the freedom to be ourselves with exhuberance.
Nature themes – butterflies, birds, insects and other images such as sea shells
*By the Sea Shore set of Shell and Starfish decal
The Porthole series is very realistic and comes in several views.
The "Cherry Blossom and Dove" decal provides a since of lovliness.
