Testimonials

Scott Lipson

Principal, Tinc Rd School

What an amazing experience! Our students loved having Caren and her assistants come in to transform our main hallway. She helped create such a sense of community by having all of our 450 students paint a portion of the wall. She even had them add their handprints too! The best part is seeing everyone's reactions as they walk through the hallway. We find something new to marvel at every time! It truly was a memorable experience for all of our students. Thank you Caren!

I recently moved to my dream house in Asheville, and Caren did decorative finishes in three of my rooms. They are so lovely! I am delighted, and love the compliments I get when friends stop by... I just love going from room to room each day… they are so rich and inviting. Each project that she did for me was spectacular- beyond my expectations!

This is the best time I've ever had in art!! This is awesome!

Simone

Asheville, NC

From the second that you open the door to my yoga studio and see the hand painted logo at the entrance, you know that the artist that worked on the space was completely invested in my project. Caren is professional, compassionate, dependable, and honest. She has integrity and is deeply committed to customer satisfaction. Most of all, Caren is very talented.

The mural was a huge hit. The Bishop said that he had never seen work so beautiful. What a tribute to your giftedness! Thank you for being so accommodating and so good natured.

Lydia Stiles

Science Teacher, Valleyview Middle School

The Valleyview Community Mural has been such a positive experience for all involved! It beautifully reflects on so many aspects of Valleyview and the larger Denville community. Our students, parents, and staff feel so much pride about their roles throughout the whole team-building process.

John Hill School

The mural project was totally awesome! Being with the kids painting was amazing. All the planning, scanning, scheduling, etc. was all worth it in the end. Thank you so much for your artistry and guidance!

Morgan Kane

Guidance Counselor, Valleyview Middle School

The artists overseeing the project, couldn't be kinder, more encouraging, or GRATEFUL for any assistance- even mine! I will be clear when I say I do not have an ounce of skill when it comes to painting- it did not matter. Within moments of walking into the cafe they handed me a brush with a paint color and described my task which was within my ability- I felt such a sense of accomplishment and pride and I truly am so thankful that all our students had the chance to experience this as well. Thank you, Caren and Jaime!!

Charlotte

Parent, Oak Street School

We love our mural! You worked your special magic and it turned out beautifully, thank you! You put so much care and loving attention into every inch of that mural and it shows. What a gift you have given OSS!! And all of us who had such good fortune to be a part of the process.

Belleza Si Esthetics

There is a distinct difference between “decorative accents” & true artistry. Caren Frost Olmsted is an example of a craftswoman who exhibits true artistry in her work, & I have the pleasure of enjoying the fruits of her labor daily in my place of business.

Seth Korman

Principal, Valleyview Middle School

The mural turned out even better than I imagined! It really brightens up the entire cafeteria and was an excellent group effort by all.
