MARTINE VANDERSPUY  children's wall ART

We have previously featured Martine on Two Quirky Birds and are huge fans of her and her art. She is well known for her beautiful works that fuse photographic imagery and graphic design using a range of tactile mediums like resin and varnish to evoke an almost dreamy, three dimensional feel. Martine has now added a bespoke scandi influenced children's wall art range to her collection. These pieces are the perfect combination of cute and cool and can be customised with a child's name or to a specific size on request. As with all her art, a percentage of every sale is donated to the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation and the Kolling Institute to help support research to find a treatment or cure for  Mitochondrial disease which her youngest son suffers from. Over the past six years, Martine and her team have raised over $230,000 to help support research. We caught up with Martine to find out a bit more about her new range.

1. What inspired you to launch this range? We found there was a gap in the market for contemporary Children’s Art so we designed a range of Animal scandi art to adorn contemporary nurseries and children’s interiors. Our aim was to let children's imaginations run wild. We can customise the size and add your child’s name as an additional service.

2. Did you design the range? I initially designed the range which will grow with time. My daughter, Kristina Martin, is in her third year of design at UNSW and has collaborated with me on the new design.

3. Are you planning to add to this story with other prints or products? Yes we will be adding to this story over time. I also have a range of bedheads that compliment the art. $10 from the sale of each artwork will be donated to Mitochondrial Disease Research to help our son and many others who suffer from Mitochondrial Disease.
