Our "Art Effects" in Trompe L'Oeil and Murals

Welcome to our "Art Effects", where "Painting Your Imagination" is accomplished with trompe l'oeil (Trompe-l'œil), murals, faux finishes and hand painted furniture.

"Art Effects" based in Central Florida is the result of the combined artistic endeavors of trompe l'oeil muralists Tim Haas of Tim Haas Artistry and Linda Cassels-Hofmann of Castles In The Air. Together we use a wide variety of techniques to create imaginative illusions with our painted wall murals and trompe l'oeil artwork. Whether it is through the skillful art of faux finishing or the tricks of trompe l'oeil, our wall murals, hand painted furniture, unique forms of trompe l'oeil paintings, decorative wall textures and sophisticated faux finishes will have you wondering...

what is real and what is not.
