Design Inspiration

When Leanne met her partner Robin, she hadn’t painted for a number of years. She had lost her creative spark and inspiration through poor mental health and a crippling lack of confidence. She’d talk a lot about her love for painting and they’d share their love for the arts. One day Robin suggested they paint a mural together in their children’s bedroom. They painted a galaxy, so they could give them the stars. Since then; art, colour and creativity bursts through every part of their lives together. Skeeal graih is Leanne’s representation of her love story.

The wave has been painted to look like a galaxy with stars and nebula to represent the first artwork they did together, the dolphin itself is covered in a colourful floral design that reflects the couples’ creative lifestyles.
