Teddy Bear Picnic Mural for a Children’s Nursery

A married couple who were soon to be parents, commissioned a mural painting from the local Derby artist and illustrator, Mair Perkins, for their nursery.

After a meeting and a talk about their ideas for the mural, the image was planned out on paper based on the wall measurements. When they were happy with the concept, the painting began.

It was then sketched out on the wall then layers of acrylic paint were built up until the image was completed.

The mural has numerous references to the Derbyshire area and images of things important and personal to the parents.
