Montross Mural Studio was opened in 2015 under the parent Company We Talk Chalk – a full-service creative agency that offers unique (3D) Visual Solutions, Murals and Workshops for clients in all corners of the world. Led by Melanie Stimmell Van Latum—the only woman to ever hold the prestigious title of “maestra madonnara” in Italy and Germany—And the creator of the Montross Murals, Montross Mural Studio offers classes, retreat style workshops, and customized Murals to the historic Northern Neck.
Melanie and her team have completed 13 murals in Montross, including the restoration of the Coca Cola Mural, and 8 murals in the neighboring Colonial Beach. Each of the murals has a historic or vintage flare that speaks to the rich history of the area. We are of the opinion that every surface is a potential canvas, and that every story can be expressed visually and look forward to creating future murals in the area they’ve come to love.
