Why Matisse?

You've probably heard of Henri Matisse and his very famous artworks featuring colourful collages and cut-outs.

Matisse's art was part of the Fauvism movement, which is described as expressive, vivid, unconventional and wild. 

To me, these are the exact things that make children's artworks so unique and very special!

Like Matisse your child's artistic expressions with my designs create a digital 'cut out' image to make personalised print.

The whole process of creation from start to finish engages children The process exposes them to the world of creativity, in which anything is possible! 

Hi, Welcome to Mini Matisse... I'm Katie!

I'm a mum of two, living in melbourne but dreaming of moving rural one day!

When my daughter was a baby she was having allergic reactions to so many different things & it rocked my world. I was constantly scared & anxious about it and stopped doing a lot of the things I loved like playdates and going out… 

I started dreaming up Mini Matisse as a way to take my mind off it and it blossomed into so much more than I ever dreamt!

Mini Matisse was born from a love of art, healing, creativity, and the magic of witnessing a child’s imagination pour out onto paper.

There’s something awe-inspiring about seeing their creative brain develop, and I wanted to capture that somehow while also saving their artwork from certain death on the fridge door.

And let’s face it, a lot of personalised gift options out there are kinda tacky and lame, so I knew my designs had to be unique and cool enough to display on a wall.

Mini Matisse turns your little people’s drawings into fine art you’ll adore forever, and gives children the opportunity to be part of creating something, whether it’s for your own home or a gift for a loved one.

I hope you enjoy following along and getting creative with us!
