Designer Spotlight- Justlikegrandma

Danny’s passion for art and animals shows in her stunning paintings. Working as a zoologist provides Danny with the opportunity to studied animals in great depth. Specialising in personalised pet portraits Danny thrills her customers with her life like pictures.

‘People love their pets so much; it’s really satisfying when you can give them a unique picture of their animal.’

Danny pays attention to every little detail of the pet, using pencil, pastels and watercolours to achieve the right effect for each portrait.

‘I use good quality coloured pencils and occasionally mix them with pastels and watercolours. Watercolours are also used in creating the “pop art” style pictures. These are a lot of fun to create; it’s refreshing to be able to use bright bold colours and geometric patterns – something you can’t really do with realistic animal pictures. ‘

Waiting For We Make Christmas?
Danny also has a passion for knitting. Her passion for animals can also been seen in her knitted dogs. Danny will have a range of these at We Make Christmas.

For We Make Christmas Danny will also be making Christmas cards with her pop art painting on them, along with some new designs exclusively for the fair.
