Love and family, they go together.

Sometimes it's not all roses  being a kid. Sometimes you need reminders to help you get through the thorny parts.

I feel blessed when a client contacts me to help those children blossom. I had that opportunity a little while ago...

A mother wanted to show her love for her children by getting a unique piece of artwork to show them how special they are to her. The mother told me that each of her children were having some learning difficulties but were doing well in other areas. She wanted to remind them of the journey that they were on with this quote.. "Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for the individual."

And so the above piece was born. The client was thrilled with the final piece...

"I love it...Its better than anything I had imagined... I love is even more in the flesh."

Of course i was delighted because she was delighted.

Have you got someone you love scrambling through some thorn bushes? Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to brighten their lives even just a little so that they could blossom to their full potential that you know is possible. Please get in contact and I can create something inspirational to brighten their way.

Keeping memories alive

I love getting special requests from friends to do a unique piece of artwork that signifies special memories in their lives.

A little while ago a dear friend asked me to do a piece for her daughter, that showed her daughters individuality and spunk. She also wanted some reminders for her daughter of childhood memories. So I started with a beautiful little face...

Next came a bright and colourful dress...

Followed by a background...

And then the finer details were added...

White butterflies, wishes and rainbows all held significant and special meaning to both mother and daughter. As did the green grass with polka dots that signified the daughters favourite blankie and the blue bear that she carries in her pocket also being a favourite childhood toy.

When I finished the artwork both my friend and daughter absolutely loved it! They both kept finding new elements that they hadn't seen the last time they had looked, which brought them joy all over again.

Have you got something special that you don't want to forget the finer details from? Please get in touch and we can help keep those memories alive in a beautiful way.

Art Studio Inspiration

This week was a big one. Our slab went down!!! So that means my little art room is one step closer to becoming a bigger art room- yay! If you want to have a reminder about how I'm currently doing my art you can read about that here. So today I thought I'd show some inspiration that I have found from my roamings on Pinterest (you can follow me here). How lovely is this bright white space and that yellow door!!!! 

 art room inspiration  Via This desk is awesome!!! Big enough for doing my art in one area and a place for all the 'techie' stuff in another!

 art studio inspiration  Via A bit of old world charm and a pop of colour perhaps...

 art studio inspiration  Via Three desks... Yes please! And a rug, so I don't ruin the floor with all the paint drips!!  art studio inspiration  Via Yep I'm getting excited!
