About the Artist - Trisha Selgrath

I always knew I wanted to do something creative as a career. For my Fine
Arts Degree, I concentrated on Advertising so I could combine many of my skills. Design, illustration, photography, writing, computer graphics and business are all part of a good Art Director's portfolio and I loved them all.

While still attending college, I met my future husband, Randy, at the Houston airport. Now, that’s a story. We were married about a year after I graduated from the University of North Texas. I traded in my unusual maiden name, Teffeteller, for another one, Selgrath. Recently, we celebrated the twenty-sixth anniversary.

I freelanced in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX area for several years which allowed me to work on a wide variety of accounts. I would do art direction, illustration, storyboarding, copywriting, conceptualization, package design, point-of-purchase design, pre-press, PR and much more. Even after moving to Atlanta, GA area, I continued to freelance before joining an agency. Finally, after years of climbing the ranks in advertising, I reached my goal of becoming a Creative Director. I enjoyed coming up with concepts and meeting with clients, but I still loved to get my hands dirty designing projects. I spent more time delegating and less time doing design and illustration.

By my early 30's, I decided to freelance again carving out time to paint and start a family. I'm so glad that I did because my children are such precious gifts that add greater purpose to every area of my life.

In 1997, while pregnant with my first, I was painting a large mural on his bedroom wall when the idea for Imaginative Murals was born. People loved the mural and wanted one of their own, but I didn’t want to be gone painting in people’s homes leaving my infant behind. So I combined all my experience with printing and my love of painting to create inexpensive prints of murals that look better than the real thing. I painted the murals in my home studio while the baby slept and Randy called on stores to sell them on the idea. Launching a business and starting a family at the same time is not easy but it has afforded us both more time with our children while we ride the entreprenurial roller coaster. We were the first on the market selling die-cut, trompe l’oeil style murals and quickly gained international distribution through retailers, decorators, catalogs, TV shopping networks and the internet.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it. ~ Trisha
