Choosing the perfect painting for your space

A couple of weeks ago I received the best gift ever from one of my lovely collectors: photos of my work hung up in its new home, and an unbelievably adorable video of their toddler, who chose the paintings herself for her room, unwrapping all the goods. If you need a reason to smile, check out the video here.

When they first reached out to discuss investing in some of my art, we chatted about some options that would work in their space based on the colours and vibe of the bedroom they were meant for. If you're not sure exactly what you're looking for, you're not confident in your instincts when it comes to choosing art or you just want a little extra guidance, I'm always more than happy to offer some options based on your favourite colours, the requirements for your space and your budget.

I know that looking through a bunch of art in one go might be overwhelming, so I love to offer personalized suggestions to help you navigate your fine arts purchase. If you need the extra assurance that the piece you're drawn to will work in your space, I can even do a custom mockup, where I edit the painting into a photo of your space so you can see exactly how it will look. This one-to-one consultation (completely free!) is a great option if you have a size or price range in mind.

That said, I've found that my collectors love to invest in pieces that resonate with them on an emotional level. While I love to help my clients narrow their search by providing individualized consultations, what I always recommend is scrolling through all of the options on my website and paying attention to which ones catch your attention, make you feel something, or want to stop and take a closer look. Part of the joy of collecting art is finding out what you like, and it can be so affirming when you give yourself permission to follow your instincts and choose what YOU want, not what someone else is telling you that you should want.

Lots of people worry that they don’t understand art, but here’s the secret:

Understanding art is about feeling the emotions it provokes in you, and putting your money into something that really speaks to you, because you deserve to design your life to be exactly how you want it to look.

Plus, when you connect with something on a deeper level and choose to invest in that connection, it's about so much more than just the art itself: seeing that painting everyday can actually improve your daily experience in a significant way.

Here’s what one of my collectors had to say:

“It looks so nice and brings some really great vibrancy into my room... I'm really really happy with it and I already feel happier every time I come into my room." - Lex

So what’s stopping you? 

Are you the type of person who loves decorating your space but prefers budget options and mass produced prints from stores like Homesense? I totally get it. We all like to save money where we can.

But there’s something really special about a one of a kind painting, entirely unique and all yours, which I’ve put all of my love and passion into creating just for you! I always love to help out with customizable payment plans to make sure that when you connect with a painting on a deep level, we’ll find a way to make it yours.

I’m always just an email away.
