I love nothing more than creating unique pieces that are personalised to perfectly suit an individual. Personalised art often make the very best of gifts or are an opportunity to commemorate events such as anniversaries or weddings. Did you know that the first wedding anniversary is ‘paper’ or a 50th anniversary is ‘gold’ and 25th is ‘silver’ – How perfect is that!
How can I personalise a piece for you? I can integrate photos into artworks or I can print meaningful words onto my butterflies. I make the process incredibly easy for you, just share your words or photos with me and I will do the rest.
Here are some examples of personalised pieces that I have loved creating. Let me know how I can create the perfect personalised artwork for you or a loved one.
The perfect piece to celebrate special anniversaries or birthdays. Memorable words are printed onto white butterflies on a subtle sheen background. Either one or two genuine Silver or 24k gold leaf butterflies in the centre to perfectly represent a couple or individual.
1ST ANNIVERSARY WEDDING PHOTO PIECE
As the first year is ‘paper’ what better gift or commemorative piece to celebrate this important milestone than a personalised artwork created in paper .. be it beautiful butterflies cut from special photographs and interspersed with colourful and glitter butterflies and 24k gold leaf to add texture and preciousness.
A bespoke version of my original ‘Midnight Escape‘ edition this is fully customisable in terms of sizes, colours, background colour and framed in either a white or black frame.
PERSONALISED PHOTO PIECE
Another 1st year gift of ‘paper’ but this personalised photo piece is actually a perfect way to commemorate any event or special memory. Beautiful butterflies cut from special photographs and 24k gold leaf to add texture and preciousness.
A bespoke version of my original ‘classic butterfly box‘ edition this is fully customisable in terms of sizes, colours, background colour and framed in either a white or black box frame.
A bespoke ‘London Calling’ artwork created for a family living in Crouch End & also incorporates their favourite images of Crouch End. The frame/board was painted a classic Blue to suit their home.
A present for a new wife to her husband, incorporating black and white images from their recent wedding. Their wedding date and personal message is inscribed on the back.
Using blue hydrangea imagery to honor a bride’s wedding bouquet. The 24crt gold leaf butterfly perfectly complements the deep blue – and adds a certain preciousness.
‘Into the Deep’ design incorporating family photos. A surprise gift from husband to wife to celebrate their 20th Anniversary and more poignant and precious after loosing their house in a fire.
WEDDING GUEST LIST
A wonderful way to commemorate a wedding or event where all the guest names are printed onto the butterflies. The dancing butterflies represent the happy couple. Can use either genuine Silver or 24k gold butterflies.
BESPOKE PHOTO THEMES
I am often asked to created personalised photo themed butterfly pieces. Photos from weddings, holidays, family favourites. London, Brighton, Super heroes and Star Wars is in my collection so far… whats next?
A surprise Christmas gift from family to father. London images and some family photos appear, the rest are beautiful autumnal shades and 24k gold and copper leaf butterflies that perfectly complement their home.
THANK YOU GIFT
A thoughtful gift from client to his health coach. An ‘on brand’ piece that she would be proud to display in her Studio using meaningful words from her website in a font and colour that perfectly match. @Peppermintwellness.
A truly customised piece – the background spray lacquered deep blue to match this premiership rugby team colour. Butterflies cut from images of the team in action, red glitters to match their away colour and green for the grass/pitch and gold leaf to add sparkle…
Using special photos is a wonderful way to keep memories alive. Wedding photos were printed and used for these butterflies. The red theme was carried through to the inner frame whilst complementing their bedroom scheme.
Starwars themed butterflies created for any enthusiast who loves Starwars.
SILVER WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
A ‘Celebration’ piece gifted from family to their parents on their Silver Wedding anniversary. Names of their children and grand children, memorable places and holiday favourites were printed onto the butterflies to commemorate 25 glorious years.
A wonderful way to commemorate a big birthday using birthday cards. Butterflies were cut from the front of the cards to add colour and some special names and signatures also appear from inside. The resulting effect creates a lovely artwork in its own right which holds special memories.
50TH BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
White on grey, with words of where my client traveled printed onto the butterflies. Four copper butterflies to represent each member of their family. Copper leaf as opposed to gold leaf, because orange as a colour is significant to them and their Dutch heritage.
Commissioned as a gift for a friend. The brief was Mallorca; all gorgeous sea, sky and boats. My client sent me pictures which I integrated with some of my textured, glitter and gold leaf butterflies.
