During daylight your room looks ordinary... The stars are not visible. Your ceiling looks as it always has—boring.  When evening comes, and it's dark, your room  magically disappears; like having a glass ceiling or a convertible roof, you can now relax under the most beautiful and realistic starry sky imaginable!

stars even twinkle! I'm getting one for myself!

    STARSCAPES F/X is the original, custom painted 3-D tr�mpe l'oeil mural of the starry night sky, hand painted exclusively by myself with invisible paint containing rare earth phosphors (not sold to the general public) that costs me $2,560 a gallon wholesale. 

     Just show me to the room, and in a couple of hours, when I'm done, you won't believe your eyes!

Invisible by day   Starscapes Classic Bedroom

Starscapes home theater night image

     This STARSCAPES F/X tr�mpe l'oeil artwork creates a very impressive illusion of having a clear glass ceiling above you, as if your home was built high up on a mountaintop, away from the city lights, and you were viewing the sky with thousands of twinkling stars on a clear night. 

     You'll thrill as you discover ancient constellations like Orion, Pegasus, Ursa Major (the Big Dipper), Gemini, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Crux (the Southern Cross) all in their astronomically correct locations.Child's Bedroom

     Famous stars like Polaris (the North Star), Vega, Arcturus, Antares, Aldebaran, Sirius and even Betelgeuse can be found along with a beautifully visible section of our own Milky Way galaxy.


     Little boy’s fantasies can be brought to life with an exciting star war, battle ships and cruisers shooting photon torpedoes at one another. While girls have their choice of pretty fairies and angels to inspire their dreams.


     When the top half of the walls are included as part of the work, it appears as though you were in an alpine valley with a mountain vista all around you. 


     Imagine sitting up in your bed as it floats among the stars. Stars all around you! Surf the galaxy!

Window to the Universe

Starting at just $199.95 - (Local Area Only)

Raleigh County, WV

Star gazing Portal

   There are various sized "Stargazing Skylites" that are two foot, three foot or 5 foot in diameter. Also known as the  Window to the Universe.  It's the same as the entire ceiling... just smaller above the bed, and surprisingly affordable starting at just $199.95.


     This hand painted artwork is in a class by itself, as it's not normally visible during daylight hours. The ceiling looks the same as it did before the work was produced. The stars in the painting only come out at night.Sleeping issues

     Over 2,000 stars can be seen... which is about a hundred times more than most people see in any given city in the world.

     Since the night sky is always changing, you have the option to choose a scene that will depict and commemorate the same day you were married, the day a child was born, or any other important day in your personal history!Starscapes Star gazing manual

     Along with your one of a kind STARSCAPES F/X, you'll receive an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity (signed and dated by me, the Artist-Illusionist). You'll also receive your "owner's manual" titled The Art of STARSCAPES.



  • It's the perfect "getaway" for anyone to relax and relieve stress and fatigue.  Alpha brain waves increase.  Metabolic rate decreases.  Heart beats slower.  Breathing becomes slower.  Muscles relax.  Blood pressure decreases.  The STARSCAPES F/X cosmic environment can enhance healing, health and wellbeing.
  • Brings the outdoors inside for those who are bedridden or lack mobility.
  • Aids in problem solving, meditation, reflection, and creation of profound ideas.
  • Creates the perfect environment for adult conversation and intimacy.
  • Helps those who have trouble falling asleep or fear the dark and night frights.
  • Makes the perfect nightlight (without illuminating the room) by giving children something wonderful to focus on, as they drift off to sleep. Covers them in a relaxing blanket of stars.
  • STARSCAPES F/X is not only an original work of art that is visually appealing, it reflects and often enhances the personality, creativity, inspiration, mind, and sometimes the genius of the person who owns it. 
     Not only is it fun and extremely cool to stargaze from bed, but every bit of concern, worry, or anxiety simply melts away and is almost spontaneously cleared as one enters the relaxing and healing alpha brain wave state created by the awe of the STARSCAPES F/X experience. 

     Over thousands of years of human history, we have effectively become an indoor species.  Particularly for those of us trapped in the cubicle life, often the only times we regularly step foot outside is for our daily work commute or to run errands. 

     In 2001, a survey sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that, on average, Americans spend 87% of their time indoors and 6% in an enclosed vehicle.

     A number of scientific studies emphasize that reveling in the great outdoors promotes human health. Spending time in natural environments has been linked to lower stress levels, improved working memory and feeling more alive, among other positive attributes.

     In an effort to combat our indoor epidemic and reap these health benefits, a growing number of people worldwide have turned to stargazing indoors in their own Cosmic Environment Simulator.

     David Yaden, a research fellow at the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center says "In the natural setting, people are more relaxed and less stressed." His recently published study was about the inspiration and awe of the perceptual vastness experienced by astronauts in space.

Psychologists discover the easiest way to boost your mood. The health benefits of stargazing.

"The awe-inspiring experience of stargazing lowers stress."
A University of Calif.Berkeley study
"Stargazing eases anxiety."  Kathleen Emerson, LPN, CHPLN
"It's very relaxing." Dr. Mike Margolis
"Improves the healthcare experience of patients and they recover quicker." Professor Roger Ulrich study

     Prof. Roger Ulrich’s research has quantified the health benefits of viewing nature. Patients with images of nature in their rooms recovered more quickly than those with no images.  In an extensive research study, Ulrich and colleagues delineated numerous strategies for improving the healthcare experience for patients and staff. "…Investigators have consistently reported that stress-reducing or restorative benefits of simply viewing nature are manifested as a constellation of positive emotional and physiological changes."  The sky is our largest, most universal, and most globally available experience of nature.

There are several theories about how nature affects mental health, said Howard Frumkin, dean of the school of public health at the University of Washington. One of them is known as the "biophilia" hypothesis, which was proposed by renowned biologist and naturalist E.O. Wilson. This theory embodies the idea that we evolved embedded in nature over most of our existence as a species, and something about that nature contact still resonates with us," Frumkin said. "Something about contact with nature is soothing and restorative and thereby good for mental health."
