About-Commission & Murals-Gift cards

Hi, my name is Jean Doremus Filson and I am an artist/muralist from central Illinois, USA. Welcome, I'm so happy to have you here! 

After college, I began my career in graphic design and Interior design. At some point, I stumbled into painting on my clients walls, soon after started my own mural and decorative painting company, LaPoima Studio. Poiēma is a Greek word meaning "Gods craftsmanship, masterpiece, poem or work of art".  I thought that was the perfect name for my business. (Of course, spelling is not my finest craft!) I started in 1994 when my children were small and continue to paint murals commercially and residentially to this day.

Now that the kids are grown, I'm excited to be expanding my artistic voice and devoting more time working in the studio creating some of my own unique pieces!

I am always striving to visually communicate an emotional experience though the use of color, design and texture. I am motivated by nature and hope to install the essence of the natural world in all of my work. I sincerely hope you enjoy my artwork as I will be continually pushing myself and expand my voice.


Commission Artwork & Murals

Interested in working with me for unique artwork or mural for your space?

I have been working with commissioned work for 28 years and I have never had a unsatisfied client!


How it works:

  • Contact me via email, we will set up a personal visit or a call. 

  • I will want to know basic information about what type of artwork your looking for and where they are going to be displayed.

  • What is your personal style and the feeling you would like the piece or pieces to have.

  • We will collaborate on content, color, sizes, timeframe and budget. 

  • When we have made those decisions, I will work on providing you some sketches, options or ideas.

  • Only when we both feel clear and confident about our expectations, a 50% deposit will be required.


  • When I feel the piece or pieces are final, I will present to you the completed work.

  • You have the final say! If you are not 100% completely satisfied, I will continue working until you are!
