Vibrant Art for Your Childโ€™s Room โ€“ Clara Nillesโ€™ Colorful Animals! (Print Giveaway!)

Clara Nilles is the artist behind these fun, colorful animal prints. Ive fallen in love with them!

Clara paints sea life, African animals, farm animals shes not afraid to tackle anything! Im an avid animal lover, but I never thought of having crabs on my wall. However, after seeing Claras crab painting, I found myself thinking of where it would fit into my decor. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just LOVE the whimsical personality of her artwork!

You can imagine how delighted I was when Clara contacted me asking if I would do a review and feature of her work. I couldnt wait to receive the two canvas mini-prints she sent me. They came to me in a manila envelope, each print well protected. And they are even more beautiful in real life!

I decided to put the bigger Jelly Bean Giraffes on Pineapple (dont you love that name?) print in Emmas room because she immediately fell in love with the colored giraffes. Heres how it looks unframed (for the moment) and hanging above this shelf:

I love it! I would so so so love to have a full-size version as a centerpiece to the room (or even in our living/dining room), wouldnt you?

The Painted Ponies on Turquoise print went into my kitchen on one of my cupboard doors. I get to see it every day now, and I love the added color. I can see myself decorating around it especially that gorgeous turquoise color! Maybe someday when I have a kitchen of my own. ๐Ÿ™‚

Im very pleased with these paintings. The prints are top quality and the paintings themselves are whimsical and fun. Love, love, love!

Want It?

You can buy her high-quality canvas mini-prints here. Theyre a little more spendy than her regular prints on heavy cardstock, which average at about $25-35.00. The best way to order a regular print is to contact her directly asking for one! See her full gallery at www.claranilles.com, and follow her blog here!
