Amy’s Art: Gifts I’ve Made for People in My Life

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”  – Pablo Picasso

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been making and drawing things for other people and giving them away as gifts. I really enjoy the challenge of coming up with an idea of a drawing or painting that I think the person would A: like and B: suit their personality.

If you’ve ever received a present that was handmade by me, I hope you realised that it was my way of saying: “I care about you. Thank you for being in my life.”

Or…maybe it just meant, “Sorry, I didn’t have enough time or money to buy you a proper present!”

Either way, I would much rather give and receive thoughtful and heartfelt presents, handmade or not.

Here are some of my favourite gifts I’ve made for my friends and family in recent years.
