Dinky Artist Rachel Wilkins Founder

Welcome to Dinky Artist!

Hi! I'm Rachel, I live in Oxfordshire with my 2 children.

I founded Dinky Artist back in 2018 but it was my "side hustle" whilst I worked full time in a corporate job.... in May 2021 I finally took the leap and left my job so I can now work full time on this amazing business! 

I wanted to create this business for 2 reasons; 1 is parents keep all our children's artwork and drawings, we don't want to throw them away but they get cluttered on the fridge door or put into boxes and put into the loft! I wanted to create a place where we can cherish and celebrate your children's first handprint or their first scribbles or the first time they draw a person or write their name! 

Giving a gift which is so personal has a new much deeper thoughtfulness to it and I've purposefully made all our products useable on a daily basis so they aren't just another ornament to put into that cabinet.

Secondly, I have a huge passion for children's mental health and enabling children to express their emotions when they can't find or know the words to speak them, I'm working with amazing charities and businesses and we launched the "Art Therapy at Home section" in the summer of 2021 which is a totally free resource for you!

We also work with and support the Teapot Trust charity who work with chronically ill children with Art Therapy.

I hope you and your recipients love your Dinky Artist products and that your children love creating them!

Rachel
