Hi, my name is Erin Ashley, and when my three little boys are sleeping – I’m a stay-at-home graphic designer. Creating printable nursery art is the perfect combination of all my favourite things: nurturing young children, home décor, and popular culture. As you will see in my collection, each print draws from contemporary trends in home decorating or fashion, then adds a heartfelt message. Obviously the very ‘littles’ aren’t reading yet, but the messages are even more encouraging for ‘mom’ and ‘dad’! I mean, which new parent wouldn’t appreciate the reminder ‘Be Brave’ posted above the change table? And while we probably think encouraging things about our children all the time – the prints are a reminder to actually verbalize them. Especially fun are the quotations drawn from popular culture, including classic children’s literature. As children are introduced to these favorite stories and characters, they’ll be delighted to make connections to the art on their bedroom walls. Best of all, selling my prints online is a way to connect with other young moms around the world.
