If you’ve ever lived in a dorm or shared a room you know how important wall decor is to make your space your own. Is it embarrassing that the first “wall art” I picked out for myself was a New Kids on the Block picture ripped out of a magazine? Yes, yes it is. I solemnly swear to raise my kids with better taste!
Tee moved out of our room and into her own room when she was three, and one of the ways we helped her make her room her own was to let her pick out some art for the walls. Kay is three now too, but she’s a little slower to make the move, so I thought maybe adding some special artwork might encourage her to claim that empty bedroom that’s been patiently waiting for her to move in.
I was recently introduced to Lisa Marie, a talented artist who creates original coloured pencil drawings and prints perfect for adding colour and personality to a living space. She kindly sent us three 8″X10″ prints to decorate Kay’s future room. Kay was quick to pick the Girl with Lion Balloon, and she liked the red striped socks on the Girl with Green Balloon.
I helped Kay pick out the last one, Child with Polar Bear. This little dark-haired girl setting out on a magical adventure reminds me of my own little girl.
Each crisp image is inkjet printed on high quality Kodak Professional Endura paper with full bleed (this means the image goes right to the edge of the paper with no white borders). Lisa Marie has lots of beautiful animal art prints and fun doodle prints for sale in her Etsy shop.
You can see more samples of Lisa Marie’s work in her portrait galleries. Recently, her studio has grown to include an art store, Noses ‘N’ Poses, with Lisa Marie’s animal prints available on dozens and dozens of products, including blankets, mugs, pillows, ornaments, iPhone cases, apparel, ties, wristlets, and even a dart board!
Lisa Marie also specializes in creating custom pencil portraits of your pet or child from a favourite photo. What a special gift for anyone! You’ll need to hurry though as these spots tend to fill up fast.
“Back in 2009 I was earning my Master’s in Art History while studying the old masters in Florence , Italy. During one late night of poring over 14th century documents, I realized that I didn’t want to just study what others have done. I wanted to create art and help bring loveliness into the world and joy to others.”
Artistry by Lisa Marie has something for everyone at any price point. Prices start at just $10.00 for a 5″X7″ print, and Lisa Marie even offers digital downloads you can print yourself! If you’re looking for something extra special, there are still a few spots left to order a custom portrait before Christmas. Custom pencil drawings start at only $60.00.
