Every Kid is a work of Art

Some people count sheep when they can't sleep. Annette Back comes up with innovative new decoration ideas.

"One night when we were staying with friends at the beach, I couldn't sleep," she says. "I had a son, Allen — he was two at the time. And I just saw it in my head: Some sort of artwork featuring his photo along with other objects that start with the same letter as his name (ie: apple, aligator, airplane). It would work for other names, letters and objects in the same manner. When we got home, I got to work. That's how AB Creations got started."

Being a graphic designer, just the right illustration style had to be found and with the perfect photo at hand, Annette designed her first piece. Finding the right output for this took a lot of research. Printing on canvas turned out to be the answer. When it arrived at the house, Allen thought it was gorgeous! Annette created a few more as gifts for friends and family. Everyone loved it. She was encouraged to start selling and the rest is history.

Annette's creations aren't gimmicky and don't try too hard to be classy. They are beautiful, fun and engaging — definitely a labor of love.

"I started this business to get the art out. I did not like any personalized art out there (with a few exceptions) everything else was so cutesy and soft, monotone and predictable. I thought this was fun and alive."

Her kids (9 years and 6 year old twins) don't leave her much time to work on the business but they are a sure source of inspiration. Says Annette, "Their faces are so super yummy; as I imagine every parent feels that way about their kids."

Annette is currently working on a new concept for parents and grandparents that features head shots of their kids on a themed background (ie: "beach" for a summer house or "food" for the kitchen, etc.) as well as more sophisticated options for older kids. She also creates customized canvases to suit each individual's style and taste.

Annette would love to hear from you with additional ideas or comments.
