Local mom & artist Jennifer Maher started her business, Your Toy Portrait, in 2009. Since it’s launch she has painted for the likes of Heather Armstrong (of Dooce.com) and even Bethenny Frankel! Your Toy Portrait takes a photograph that you send them of your or your child’s favorite toy and transforms it into a timeless piece of art, sure to be a keepsake for years to come. The paintings are great for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, or even as a baby shower present. Imagine your child opening a gift at their baby shower of a painting of the toy that they loved for so long. Some of her most popular paintings have been turned into prints, so anyone can decorate with them. The prints are available in our store, and some of Jennifer’s original artwork can be viewed and bought here also. I am a huge fan of the custom family portraits YTP paints using Little People figures, so cool and such a fun conversation piece.
To see more of the artwork, or to purchase your own, please visit www.YourToyPortrait.com
