Once upon a time there was a magical kingdom of childhood. It was made of hopes and dreams- a beautiful world of wonderment and make-believe. But if you blinked, it would vanish...

Your portrait is a time capsule. A way to press pause and travel back to when your child was simply joyous and quintessentially happy. Their childhood face immortalised in paint- when their innocent eyes sparkled and their chubby cheeks could be smooched for daaayzz. A simple time, when hugs made everything better.

Hi, I’m Col and I spend my days breathing life back into your treasured memories through paint. I have been a portrait artist for 9 years with over 1500 portraits now completed. I’m mum to Sonny and Jagger and before starting OSD, I spent 15 years as a Prep teacher and children’s entertainer/ clown/ magician. Little people are my jam!

Established in 2013, One Sonny Day has certainly evolved over the years but at the heart, it remains the same- capturing the magic of childhood and the spirit of your little one. The final artwork is always filled with light, texture, romanticism... and a whole lot of heart and soul.

My pieces are the perfect keepsake to forever spark joy. Meticulously handmade to inspire nostalgia... and to treasure for years to come. I hope they warm your heart like a perfect sunny day x
