If you’re looking for some art to brighten up your kids rooms you should definitely check out Chiklit for super cute child-focused artwork. Chiklit Art and Design is Vancouver’s first, online, child-focused art gallery showcasing original acrylic paintings, high-quality reproductions, photography and more.
Chiklit was launched in spring of this year by mom and Ontario Collage of Art graduate Lisa Riley, who has taken the name of her business from her daugher Finley’s nickname. Lisa formerly specialized in photography of babies and children, and is now excited to combine her passion for children with her love of painting. “Going forward I’ll be offering my photography work, but through my themed painting series, and custom nursery murals, I’ll be connecting with kids and their parents in a different way: through our shared sense of delight with the world – its colours, its creatures and its humour” she says.
Her original artwork comes ready to hang and is painted on high quality, two inch deep canvas and this particular series of animals at play are strong on colour and whimsey, perfect for play rooms or above your little one’s bed.
All artwork, originals and competitively priced reproductions, can be purchased on the Chicklit website. Keep an eye out over there for photography to come, and no doubt more cute paintings, Lisa says “Strange and funny ideas continue to flood my brain and with my husband’s support I keep painting, and painting. One thing’s for sure, I crack myself up and I hope that my paintings make others laugh too.”
