I have a young daughter and I love to see her play, sing, learn and be the little girl she is. Like all parents, my wish for her is to grow up happy, healthy, successful and confident. She has so many wonderful characteristics about her now and I can only imagine how they will develop. Our goal is to guide her, to encourage her and to instil a strong sense of self-respect and strength of character, to ensure that she will be able to navigate the sea of media and peer influence successfully. To understand cause and effect. To be strong yet compassionate. To respect inwardly and outwardly. To be brave, to be herself and to do good.
That is what inspired me to create this print as a visual reminder of the most valuable things we can possess; our character, our values, our strengths and our complexities. A reminder of what we are, what we can be or aspire to be. A back to basics. A wish list. A bucket list. A list of the reasons you are loved. All of these is what this print can mean.
What do you feel this print could mean for you? I would love to know.
I am a creative soul and a mother of two.
