A design service which creates wall worthy art of your childern's drawings

The Junior Masterpieces started by accident. I was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer volume of artwork my girls produced at preschool. I started selecting the best ones, editing them for presents, wrapping paper and other uses. The ones I really liked, I would screen print. A friend saw one and wanted something similar of her son's drawing. By word of mouth it has slowly and steadily been growing ever since.

I love the honesty of children’s drawings, their freedom, according to them we don't actually need bodies or fingers. Their creative freedom is amazing..

If you have an amazing child's drawing you would like reproduced, send me a conversation. We can discuss your wishes and find a way to make it happen. I have done text, whole families drawn by the children, robot drawings. Every new idea is an exciting challenge to make it work and look beautiful.

My aim is to use your child’s creative output whilst making sure outlines are clear and replacing colours with the QuirkyLime palette to clean and brighten the image. This creates the strong, vibrant look of Junior Masterpieces. I can add names, dates, your chosen text and other memorabilia. The background is added last to achieve the real “wow” factor. This process is simpler where images are provided as single line/ one colour drawings. Once this creative re-touching is complete,I prepare the image for pre-press before sending it to the printer. This whole process should take around 2 weeks.

Additional policies and FAQs
The prints are very durable look great in frames and are best kept away from direct sunlight. Most prints are printed on paper sizes to fit standard frames. If not printed on standard paper I offer an additional mount to fit standard size frames. Occasionally on small prints I offer the option to supply it framed.

I try to photograph the products as accurate as possible to reflect size, detail and colour. together with the item description I try to give you maximum information to understand the item.
