If you follow our Facebook page, you may have noticed our recent fun home art project, these mini Pop Art canvases..

We created these for a redecorating project in the basement – perhaps we’ll tell you more about that later.

It turns out these custom portraits inspired a friend of ours who was in search of gifts for a couple of friends who have had new baby girls. She didn’t want to give the usual baby loot; blankies, stuffed animals, things that are outgrown and forgotten in a few months. So she decided she wanted to give the gift of art! Art is unique and can be personalized, as a gift it is incredibly thoughtful and leaves an impression on the recipient.

Our friend chose a quote she had seen, its origin is apparently unknown, “Let her sleep; for when she wakes she will move mountains,” then with a little guidance from our resident artist she created her own designs and color palette to make it a truly special piece for each family. We assisted by printing the finished images on canvas and stretching them, and as you can see, the results were adorable.




These are one of a kind gifts that the new parents will love to hang in the nursery, and they will be suitable on their daughters’ wall for years to come. And you can bet they will never forget who gave them these original pieces of art.

So next time you have a gift to give, think art! Of course, a custom pet portrait is a great idea for the dog lover or cat lover in your life. But look around.. you never know where you might find a little inspiration!
