Pete Cromer is an Australian artist with a colourful and quirky way to pay tribute to the beautiful animals we have in Australia.
I live in the rural hills and am surrounded by many of the creatures depicted in the art of Pete Cromer. Typically Australian animals such as the kangaroo, koala, magpie, kookaburra, and galahs are joined by rosellas, fairy blue wrens, rainbow lorikeets, and cockatoos; all of which we have in abundance in our large valley garden. We even have pardalotes, also depicted in Pete’s work, and we once did have an azure kingfisher (very rare).
So when I saw the art of Pete Cromer on delightful homewares store Hunting for George I felt COMPELLED to share them with you here. Pete Cromer is a designer, illustrator and happy art creator based in Victoria’s surf coast. His work is filled with personality and combines an eclectic mix of mediums.
Perfect for any child’s bedroom, playroom, or study space these quirky prints will become a firm decor favourite. In fact, you will probably want to buy the whole collection. No squabbles over which child gets which picture as there is plenty of choice – birds, mammals, fungi, flowers, and abstract. Priced at just $95 for an A3, limited edition, numbered, and signed by Pete Cromer. These beautiful print artworks will also increase in value.
When creating rooms for kids, allow your child to be involved in the process. When a child chooses their own decor they tend to feel more responsible for keeping it in good condition. If they choose a ghastly colour, well, you can always paint over it, let’s face it. Avoid very strong colours, such as red and orange, for small children as they can increase energy, which you don’t want at bed time.
Allow children to choose their own bedding and have a voice in the choice of furniture. This will increase their sense of responsibilty. Ensure there is enough storage, space to display for books, and teach them from an early age to put their toys away.
