Do what you love
I spent a lot of time thinking about that. Years later, what it came down to was very simple. I love kids and I love being creative. Inspired by preserving memories through keepsakes, I embarked upon a monster project .. to unearth and make use of years and years of storage boxes filled with beautiful childrens’ artwork that never saw light of day. 1200 pieces in all. And in the process of photographing, digitally capturing, cropping and cleaning them all up, I discovered I could create beautiful, permanent, bespoke pieces of art as a family legacy… with artwork crafted by my very own little people.
Each time I looked at them, I realised I was creating a road map of my childrens’ pasts and a reminder of the things that have impressed upon them. I was embracing the meaning in my life through printed versions of the little stories that mattered most. In a world of increasing dependency on screens and technology and the ease with which we can disconnect from others, more importantly, these pieces can become family anchor points for reconnection. So I came to realise, that if others share similar thoughts and challenges of limited time, resources and growing piles of kids artwork, maybe they too could benefit from a bespoke service like this. What could be more beautiful than to fill your home with permanent memories?
