Whimsical animal portraits to appeal to any age or gender

I am very much inspired my nature. I recently went hiking with my husband and two girls when a black bear poked his head out from a bush beside us. If it wasn’t for my sheer panic, my camera would have captured the perfect picture of this adorable animal. I paint animals, and a black bear may just be the next animal I paint!

My shop specializes in whimsical animal prints that are reminiscent of vintage portraits. As a mother of two girls, educated in art and design, I noticed how difficult it was to find realistic animal portraits for my girls’ rooms. This is when Lucky Wall (Etsy: LuckyWallArt) was born, specializing in canvas and watercolour prints of my original oil paintings.

My work strives to be playful and fun while demonstrating a high level of technical skill and an attention to detail. Deliberately gender-neutral, the animals and the background colours I choose compliment a wide variety of colour schemes and room styles, and the materials I use are high quality, durable and archival.
