"I have always been creative and needed an outlet for it. But it wasn't until recently that watercolor painting came into my life. It wasn't until I was pregnant with my son that I found my love for it wen I painted his alphabet cards for his nursery. So I guess in some ways he has been my inspiration. I love creating beautiful personalised spaces in my home, and James' nursery was no exception. I love nature and we try and be as environmentally friendly as possible, I love going for walks, having putputi in our whare, photographing nature and just being outside always makes me feel better. So there's an affinity there to paint flowers, trees and animals and something I am so passionate about doing.
I love the idea that my designs from the environment are going on reusable eco friendly nappies, so I guess my first message would be ka pai for choosing to care for our whenua, our land.
Secondly, I am just a stay at home māmā who loves to paint and the fact that people are wanting to pay me for it humbles me so much so thank you so much for your tautoko, your support. I also want it to recognise how much Mums, but in particular stay at home Mums have to give, have to offer. I see so many Mums, like myself, who have, in the absence of a 9-5 job found their passion or honed their skillset to offer products, art, services or guidance in so many different facets and it's so awesome to see. So my second message is, we are capable of anything. Find your passion and run with it.
I want people to know the amount of aroha that has gone into the design. The amount of thought and how proud and humbled I am to have my design on this nappy. I want other Mums and Dads to know that they aren't just supporting Laura's small business (Looloo) but also other māmās small businesses like my own and how cool that is to support small and local."
New Zealand Artist
Graphic Artist and Designer
"The creative process just gets me sooo excited....taking that small spark of an idea & bringing it to life!
I get a lot of my inspiration from nature and the outdoors - but for me, inspiration pops up in my day to day life everywhere! - grocery shopping, going for walks, conversations with others, magazines, art galleries, road trips, the flow of ideas never ends.
To the person who purchased one of the nappies I designed; thank you. I hope you love it as much as I enjoyed creating the art for it.
I wanted to design something that has a timeless design with a minimalist approach, that doesn't clash with your babies outfits but compliments them.
I really appreciate your support. I want you to feel.....
Ahhhhhh - a sigh of relief that they have found a nappy that you can feel proud to put your baby in!"
New Zealand Illustrator and Designer
"I’m inspired to create highly visual designs that communicate clearly for my clients. I love listening to what companies want and need and delivering design greater than they imagined.
Part of what makes my design unique is that I use hand drawn illustration work within my work (where appropriate).
The message I would like to give the parent who purchased my design is, keep it up, you’re making a small yet significant difference. A lot of my illustration work has been for environmental projects about waste minimisation, composting and ecological restoration, and I love encouraging the idea of reducing waste in our country. Also well done for supporting a New Zealand company."
Predominantly working in the medium of water colours, I create hand-drawn illustrations which are then digitally arranged into repeat patterns. I’m so excited to be among this group of talented pattern designers who’s designs feature on these amazing Sassy Pants Nappies!"
