about the artist

My name is Karl Rademacher and I operate my own business, MAD BEAN PAINTING & DESIGN.  Because of my training and experience, I can offer clients more than the average painter, and would like to introduce myself and my business.  

MAD BEAN PAINTING & DESIGN is about more than just applying flat layers of paint to walls, although I can certainly do that.  Faux finishes, murals, stencils, and specialty designs might emphasize architectural elements, create or reinforce a theme, or simply make rooms more interesting.  I enjoy reacting to existing colors, motifs, and architecture to design something special and different in a given living space and am uniquely qualified to do so.

I received my MFA in painting from Illinois State University in 2001 and have been creating paintings and teaching art ever since.  My training and active involvement in the arts has provided me with a keen design sense, knowledge of color interaction, and ability to adapt my skills to a variety of styles.  I am able to act as painter, designer, and color consultant at the same time, and am also willing to work with other designers and craftspeople to create an environment that clients will enjoy for many years.

The images seen here are examples of past work.  I have worked very realistically and in a more abstract manner.  I will adjust my creative process to adapt to a client’s individual tastes or requirements and am comfortable working in a wide array of styles to make the client happy.

If you would like more information, please contact me for a free consultation.  I can work with you to create a new look for a room or simply accent and unite existing elements.  Thank you for considering MAD BEAN PAINTING & DESIGN.
