I was sent a couple of pictures by Outshine Art to review and very beautiful they were too. Suzanne runs Outshine Art from her Walton-on-Thames studio. She used to work as a buyer for Harvey Nics which I think is a good benchmark to describe the kind of quality and attention to detail you can expect from Outshine.
Suzanne creates framed art from sketches she has drawn which are then cut-out from thick white mountboard. Under the mountboard she places beautiful colour prints. All in all the effect is simple but beautiful – the white mountboard makes the colour prints underneath stand out. This is the kind of artwork any nursery across the land would be proud to display. Of course she personalises them too by embossing the names onto the mountboard. Oh and she doesn’t just make art for little ones – check out her website for lots of ideas.
I love that Suzanne started this business after she’d had her first child. Sometimes having a baby really does get the creative streak in us going. The pictures are handmade, really high quality and the kind of gift I can well imagine a Mum being mighty pleased with.
Things I liked: Very high quality images and frame, beautiful wrapping, a very bespoke experience. Well priced given the artisan quality.
Things I didn’t like: Nothing!
