Colleen Jorgensen

Colleen Jorgensen My name is Colleen Jorgensen and I've been painting murals for the past 15 years. I started Mural Maker & More as a means to connect with readers and offer behind-the-scenes to murals, as well as tips & techniques to painting your own projects with ease and fun. I've lived in Sacramento for the past 35 years, and spent my childhood in Placerville. I've watched Sacramento grow from a small town to a large city, with wonderful communities and varied activities. I love this city and look forward to connecting with more Sacramentans.
