The wall that started it all

After staring at a large boring white wall for the longest time in the original 2020 Covid lockdown, my kids and I decided to get brave and let loose on it. We drew literally anything that came to mind in pencil and I coloured over the lines in black acrylic paint, creating a massive one-of-a-kind mural in their playroom. Our friends who were following it's progress on social media all loved it and suggested we do a colouring book or something and said 'they would buy it!'
All the free time in the initial strict lock down in New Zealand gave me time to truly think and reassess my priorities. I quit my job and decided to go for it. Since the privilege of becoming a parent, ECPAT is the charity we are raising awareness and  funds for. 

Boopino is my old nickname from crazy carefree times studying to be a knicker designer in the early 90's at Leicester Poly, UK.  It's now our team name - I love being inspired by and working with my kids.  I’m excited to see where this takes us and for the difference we can hopefully make. Thank you for your support and interest in our journey. If you would like to follow us please add us on social media and /or subscribe to our email newsletter. Lotsalove
