How to hire a painter?

I'd like to hire some kind of artistic painter.. and experiment with having them paint my room.. create cartoon type characters or images..something?

So how would I go about finding/hiring said person..? was hoping people on this forum would know..

Depends on how adventurous you are....
If you live near a college or university with an art program, a note on the student center bulletin board will get you some leads.

If you'd rather go with someone a little more proven, search for a firm that does faux painting in your area.

I'd start by better nailing down what you want; the more vague your ideas, the harder time someone is going to have putting them on the wall.

Just tried a Google using "mural painting [my city]" and came up with a couple of pages of hits so you might try that. Ask for examples of previous work and references. Request sketches of what he plans before he begins to work.
