Baby Ayla with her first piece of original art – the start of her collection!

Emily wanted to gift her niece with something meaningful and unique to celebrate her first birthday. As a gifted musician and art lover herself, Emily was drawn to the idea of starting Ayla her very own art collection.

It’s not only a beautiful and original way to decorate her colourful bedroom in a way that will grow with her as she ages but also as an investment in her future. Gone are the days of stuffy savings bonds… collecting original art is the way to go!

Emily loves the bright, vibrant colours in my aspen and birch tree paintings as well as the thick application of paint, two characteristics that Ayla (even at one year old!) can appreciate.

Here is the note I received from Emily along with the photo above:

“Ayla Rose the art collector, and her first piece by the fabulous Melissa McKinnon-Artist – and she absolutely loves it!!! Her face lit up the moment she saw it! Thank you Melissa!”

It was an absolute joy to paint for you Ayla Rose, I hope this painting brings you a lifetime of happiness and inspiration!

  1. What a great idea. As a new grandmother I think I’ll start a similar tradition.
