I love personalized art for my kids – in fact I already have a piece coming for our new addition (good thing I am set on her name!) and can’t wait to display it above her crib next month. Each of my kids has some type of personalized art in their room. When I was a kid, I didn’t have anything personalized with my name unless it was written on it in marker so I really love that my kids have these special keepsakes.
Designer and illustrator Tracy Hopkins has years of experience in childrens art, working for several years for Harcourt School Publishers illustrating and developing Flash based games for grades K-6. In 2006 she went freelance and has continued to work for them as well as National Geographic School Publishers and Harcourt Religion Publishers. Freelance means that Tracy has more time to dedicate to her real passion – childrens personalized artwork!
Tracy offers not only artwork but also great Original Art Prints, Magnets, Alphabet Posters and more. Ordering is easy – when ordering a personalized item, everything is accessible through drop-down menus right on the website. The best part? Shipping is free for all orders within the US and Canada!
I wish I had artistic talent and admire those that do! So how does Tracy take her creative ideas and make them real? Tracy says:
My process begins with everything drawn first by hand. This illustration is then scanned and digitally colored and textured using
Illustrator and Photoshop.
My prints are then created using a professional large format printer with archival inks on high quality fine art stock, with some pieces
printed directly to canvas.
Everything is 100% handmade, including the frames, mats, and magnets.
