From happy snaps to Cuddle Portrait…
Say ‘I love you’ in a beautiful gift.
Create the perfect gift for the one you love with an adorable Cuddle Portrait.
Each Cuddle Portrait is sensitively developed with your family in mind. Kia captures the shining nature of your family members, pets, favourite plants and nick nacks to beautifully reflect your love and life in one gorgeous portrait.
The idea of Cuddle Portraits sprang from Kia in support of the ‘Yes’ campaign for Gay Marriage Rights in Australia. She made her original portrait As Long As We’re Together for the ‘Love is Love’ art exhibition in Melbourne 2017.
Kia has always had a passion for representing diversity in her paintings and values the positive impact that she can have by bringing images that celebrate diverse families into our visual culture.
As such, she is frequently commissioned to make Cuddle Portraits for families that defy the main-stream narrative of nuclear families. She has painted for the GLBTIQ+ communities as well as making Cuddle Portraits which include family members who have died. Some families who have lost beloved members find it healing to have Cuddle Portraits made that include their deceased loved-one, which Kia is keen to provide.
So if you would like to see your love and your family reflected in one of these beautiful Cuddle Portraits, you’ve come to the right place.
