Custom Toy Portraits

There usually comes a time when your child is ready to give up that special toy or stuffed animal, but you can capture it in the form of artwork! In just 2 weeks, you can have an affordable, custom portrait of your child's special toy to keep and admire on the wall.

Jennifer Maher is an artist who began painting her daughter's toys as a way of documenting them. You get to tell Jennifer exactly what you envision for the portrait and even what makes the toy so special to your child. Her husband builds the simple pine frame that your canvas will come in, ready to hang.

This would also make such a great gift. How about having a toy that was special to you or someone else in your family painted for your child's nursery? There are lots of possibilities here and Jennifer can work from any photograph. Starting at $60, you can order your toy portrait here.
