Recently my daughter and son transitioned from their toddler beds to single beds. With this transition came my need to redecorate their shared bedroom, and to look for new artwork for their walls. In my experience, finding the perfect artwork for children is rather difficult but luckily for me, I came across Cici Art Factory, while browsing away on my laptop one night. I immediately fell in love with the very whimsical, beautiful and fun artwork and knew the artwork would be perfect for my children’s new room. The artist behind Cici Art Factory is fellow Canadian, Liz Clay; a graduate of Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design and a mother of five! Her passion resides in making “art for little eyes.” Her artwork includes paintings of anything and everything that your child can dream of and imagine; fairies, mermaids, pirates, astronauts, princesses, whales, woodland creatures and more!
Here are just a few of the pieces offered for girls:
And here are some for boys:
Currently, Cici Art Factory has four very popular collections and about 193 different prints and canvases to choose from, with Liz Clay dreaming up and producing new designs every so often. You can view all the different artwork that are available for purchase HERE.
Prints start at $29.95 CND plus 7% for taxes and giclee canvases start at $79.95 CND plus 7% for taxes. Each print is professionally printed in Canada, signed and hand-embossed by Liz Clay, and comes with a matte ready for framing. A giclee print (in case anyone is wondering) is a reproduction using all the tonalities and hues of the original painting. The great thing about choosing the giclee canvases, besides the larger size and that is comes ready to hang, is the fact that Liz will customize the colour of the hair, skin, and eyes to resemble your child. She will also add personalization (your child’s name, initials, etc.) for an additional fee of $10.00 CND. These touch-ups will be complete within two days after payment, and a photo will be sent for your approval before the canvases are shipped out. Shipping is a flat rate of $4.95 CND and usually takes 7 business days. I received mine in four days.
Here are the canvases that I ordered a few weeks ago. I love them and my kids love them even more! I am so thrilled with the customized skin tones and hair and the subtle way my children’s initials were incorporated into the paintings, as per my request.
I just received these canvases a few days ago, and yet I already have my eye on a future purchase. Both my children are really fascinated by the solar system at the moment. We are always star gazing and moon-watching at night, and so the following amazing painting would be another perfect addition to the children’s room.
Liz, if you are reading this: Thank you for the beautiful artwork and keep up the great work! I cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
