As a child, Charis Turner loved to draw pictures and would spend hours practising "bubble writing" with felt-tips in her bedroom.
Now the former primary school teacher has put her artistic skills to good use and set up Name Art, creating stunning artwork which cleverly hides words in the pictures she draws.
The busy mum of two young boys began her innovative business in 2008, creating gifts for newborns - incorporating their names into striking images of teddies, toys and animals.
After this, the business progressed and from its studio near Bath, Name Art now creates vibrant designs that are applied to prints, wallstickers, door plaques, coasters and mugs. Each product makes a thoughtful and personal gift.
Charis has a passion for creating beautifully unique products that reflect children's favourite interests. Tractors, fairies, football, horses, dinosaurs, pirates, ballet, the list is endless- take a look, the words are hidden in the pictures!
Name Art only applies its designs to the highest quality products, from stylish homewares and keepsakes to gifts that you can be proud to give. As the company has progressed, adults are requesting Name Art designs for themselves for their kitchens and bathrooms so you may be able to treat yourself too! The Footprint range has been one of the largest successes.
Why not follow the trend and order something unique for your own home - Name Art loves creating the unusual artwork and hopes that you will love showing it off in your house.
Now the business has become such a success, Charis is helped out by her friend Elise who designs and prints in the studio with her - she's also rather good with the camera!
Using Twitter has helped create amazing results for Name Art. The most exciting part of joining Twitter is that it has enabled Charis to enjoy a variety of tweets with a whole host of celebrities which you can read all about on her blog. It's exciting times for Name Art!
Charis is extemely proud of the fact some of her pictures are hanging on the walls of high profile celebrities. Name Art fans include Dannii Minogue who has a commissioned piece of artwork and is just one of the celebs who are loving Name Art's designs.
Name Art has also benefited from Twitter by finding gorgeous stockists such as notonthehighstreet. Even this Name Art website has been lovingly designed by @bweb and Charis feels blessed to have made a whole heap of fabulous friends, many of whom are hard-working mums running their own businesses.
Whilst Name Art is like a third baby to Charis, the thing she loves most about her company is that it fits in around...
