I have been creating fine art and community art for over 30 years. A few years ago my wife and I had a wonderful baby girl and the artist in me began to draw her to capture those ever changing stages of her growing up. I had the idea for a creative journey, where, over an 18 year long period I would draw her just before each birthday and make that portrait into her unique birthday card. It has been amazing to see the differences from year to year as she grows and develops into a unique and dynamic individual. I will be presenting her with the book of all those drawings on her 18th birthday.
Friends and family have been inspired by this and asked if I could do the same for them and their children and this prompted me to offer this out to others and invite parents, grandparents, relations and friends to commission these special portraits of the children in their family.
