As Babyologists, we don’t tend to just slap a print or painting onto the walls of our children’s bedrooms without much thought or research. I’d say we all like something that is a little different but still thoroughly child-orientated and how can we resist a bit of a chuckle in between?
Here comes Chiklit Art & Design, ready to deliver with thought-provoking and interesting pieces of artwork that bring a smile to our faces and a giggle to our little ones. While preparing this feature, my daughter wandered into the study and caught sight of the ‘Sheep Tossing’ painting from the ‘Hobby Farm’ collection (pictured below). As a doesn’t-miss-a-beat three-year-old, her vision was transfixed and then she let out a good ‘ol belly laugh. She thought the sheep being tossed into the air by a seesaw was downright hilarious.
Lisa Riley, the illustrator and painter behind the artworks, has created the whimsical, bright, humourous and playful pieces with her own daughter in mind (whose nickname is Chiklit). Little details like the toothy-grinned shark and little birdies who rule the roost at the farm are what sets her paintings apart.
All pieces are available from Chiklit Art & Design as original paintings on canvas or as prints on fine photo paper. Prices range from CAD$29.95 to CAD$285, plus shipping to Australia.
