For artist and mother-of-two Summer Daniels, the arrival of her first daughter two years ago not only made way for a re-connection with her love of art but the launch of a brand new business Little Rae Prints.
Ms Daniels, now a mother of two daughters, says she was initially inspired by the energy, heart and soul that came from being a new mum. All her watercolour creations are whimsical, soft and filled with make believe.
“I like making my pictures glow and look magical. I love the magic and innocence of childhood and my paintings fit in the space between children’s dreams and reality. I hope they encourage a child’s imagination and make their rooms feel magic.” Ms Daniels said.
While her two little girls have influenced Little Rae’s overwhelmingly blush palette to date, Ms Daniels is currently working on a blue collection with cooler tones to create prints that have a boyish element to them but still contain her signature touch.
How to add a touch of magic to your little one’s room:
For me, it is all about surrounding them with an environment that encourages the imagination, lets them be little and envelopes them in a big safe, bear hug of warmth when they enter. That’s what Little Rae Prints is all about - it's warm, it's loving and it sits in the world that exists between reality and dreams.....magic!
