SISTER ACT A CREATIVE FIND
CLEVER SISTERS MERGE TALENTS
PUT two sisters, a couple of children together, add in chaos and creativity and what do you get?
You get a range of beautiful wall art designed by the sisters and mums behind the creative brand name Toucan which aims to inspire children to dream big and visualise their true potential.
Toucan brand was formed when sisters Renee McGrath and Natalie Muscatello could not find anything creative to decorate their children’s rooms with.
Renee has a background in childcare and Natalie in graphic design. Together they launched Toucan last year.
“We each have children and wanted to create beautiful, modern spaces where they (and their dreams) can grow. Art brings such a beautiful energy to a room. It provides a talking point, helps to frame the space and injects it with colour and creativity,’’ Renee says.
“We came up with the name because we believed that as sisters we could create something magical (Toucan is a play on the words – two-can). It just fits,” Natalie adds.
The Toucan collection includes a wide range of wall art and recently launched soft furnishings and accessories for children’s rooms.
“We have a large suite of designs that parents and children just love. The collection also features motivational and inspirational quotes … timeless and charming scripted art pieces dress walls with words such as Hope, Inspiration, Motivation and Dream Big Little One.
For something a little sweeter, the range includes ice-cream or popsicle prints. Then there are the flamingo heart, water coloured deer, or Love You More Than I Could Bear prints.
They say the designs are inspired by their daily lives, their children and what makes them smile.
“And we love the fact that when our children wake up, one of the first things they see is something that will make them smile,’’ the sisters say.
