Brad Stivers' Profile

About

Welcome to Moany and Lalla's. My name is Brad Stivers and I have always loved making a mess with a wide variety of art materials. I am currently working as a mural artist in Louisville, KY where I often have the opportunity to make a mess on a very large scale with an incredible amount of paint.

We have two young children, a boy and a girl, who are very much like their mother but are also little artists and mess-makers in the making. I started this Etsy shop in July of 2009 when my daughter was calling my son Moany and herself Lalla (hence the name of the shop) to bring some of the stuff I was working on at the time to the masses.

Welcome to Moany and Lalla's. My name is Brad Stivers and I have always loved making a mess with a wide variety of art materials. I am currently working as a mural artist in Louisville, KY where I often have the opportunity to make a mess on a very large scale with an incredible amount of paint. I have a beautiful wife who is very dismayed by the fact that everything we own has paint on it or will eventually. We have two young children, a boy and a girl, who are very much like their mother but are also little artists and mess-makers in the making. I started this Etsy shop in July of 2009 when my daughter was calling my son Moany and herself Lalla (hence the name of the shop) to bring some of the stuff I was working on at the time to the masses. I like to think of the work I'm doing as "storybook" art even though there is no written story to accompany the piece. My hope is that the character and visual story in each artwork or series of artworks will stir yours child's imagination and has an impact in the room beyond that of matching your child's bedspread, though that is important as well. Please do enjoy your time in the shop!

From time to time I feel like making art about stuff like genealogy, memory, time, pipes, gears and other stuff that kids that don't really like so I decided to open another shop for that work. You can find that shop here: http://www.OneMinuteUntil9.etsy.com
