In preparation for his baby girl’s birth, artist Tim Hussey created a diptych to represent her heritage and the experience he and his wife had shared during the pregnancy. He hung it above her crib and waited for her arrival. Months later, while rocking baby Merrick to sleep, Tim found himself studying his painting on the nursery wall. The images, words, and textures seemed to take on a different, deeper meaning now that she was here, and reminded him of the original inspiration for the piece. He knew there had to be others like him and his wife who would appreciate custom art for their children - something to hang on their walls beyond the usual mass-produced cartoon imagery, something that would be meaningful for both child and parent and could grow with them through the all the phases of life.
Born out of a desire to create something beautiful and thoughtful for their newborn baby’s nursery, artist Tim Hussey and his wife Elise created Abstract Baby.
