Beautiful bespoke hand drawn illustrations finished in watercolours by Cute Pics Designs, a delightful art enterprise which specialises in providing unique personalised gifts.
Former secondary school deputy head Alison Goodwin is now devoting her time to pursuing her drawing passion which she describes as coming from the heart. Encouraged by her daughter, who commissioned a number of themed personalised illustrations for her nursery, she is making it her focus to produce thoughtful, original pieces to order, framed or mounted as wished.
Cute Pics has a range of pictures which can be adapted and personalised for the nursery, weddings, birthdays, Christmas and other occasions, often featuring family themes based on appealing animals, flowers, unicorns, fairies and colourful wellies. She now also includes bespoke wedding dress illustrations to capture that special day.
So how does the process work? Starting with a discussion about who it is for and the detail wanted, Alison produces a sketch for consultation and finally a finished piece which is lovingly hand drawn and painted with high quality water colours, acrylics or inks.
“They are all individually created for the customer,” says Alison. “I love doing them as they all tell a great story and make great gifts.
“I normally create them within a week but can produce them in three or four days if needed quickly.”
