To be honest, the thought of hanging up an oil painting in my home has never crossed my mind.  It seemed like an atas thing that only rich people do in their luxurious homes.  Afterall, oil paintings usually don’t come cheap.


That was until I was introduced to My Petit Espace.  My Petit Espace is a Singapore-based shop that does CUSTOMISED oil paintings.  I browsed through their past works on their website and instagram and was intrigued! Because I realised that oil paintings need not be arty-farty.    They can be cute.


They can be extremely bright and colourful..


They can be incredibly cool.


And they can be customised to fit nicely into a space of any size!



My Experience with My Petit Espace

After being inspired by their past works, I suddenly had plenty of ideas what kind of painting I could put up in our home.  I kept changing my mind… Initially I wanted a family portrait.  Then I wanted to do one of my kids when they were newborns.  Then I thought of putting up one of Mount Fuji, since you know.. I love Japan? Oh, I know! I shall do one from our vacation photos!

So happily, I went to my portable hard disk to find a nice photo.  But to my horrors, I realised all my photos from our summer Hokkaido trip last year were corrupted!!

But I guess that gave me even more incentive to have an oil painting as a memorabilia for this particular trip!  So what I did… I went to find a friend who went to Hokkaido recently to ask for a photo of the flower fields of Furano.

Next, I looked for the most decent photo I could find of my boys.

And I sent the two photos to My Petit Espace and asked if they could put my boys into the flower fields to recreate my travel moment.   They were extremely professional about it, photoshopping my boys into the flower fields and re-adjusting the size and position until I was happy.  After I approved the photo, they sent the painting to be made.  Here is a picture of the photo (top) and the artwork (bottom).

I thought my older boy was very well drawn – look at the details of his clothes and bag! But my younger boy looked a bit plumper than in the photo.   Anyway if you are not happy with the art work that they email you, please voice it out until you are happy.  I quote the refund policy on their website:

Refund Guarantee Policy?

Mypetitespace.com offered a refund guarantee for all our Oil Paintings.

You will be able to check your painting (via email) once it is completed by our skilled artists.  We advise you to give us your comments.  We will work on the amendments as per your comments.  Nothing is too much as it is our desire to provide you a satisfied painting and we will work hard to fulfill this.

So back to my painting.  I was happy enough with the art work they sent me and gave my approval.  Framing is usually not included with oil paintings.  For customers in Singapore, My Petit Espace offers gallery wrap framing.  Note that there will be a $40 delivery fee for framed paintings.

If you are from overseas, it is recommended to have the painting delivered to you without any framing to minimize chances of damage to the painting.  I had mine framed by My Petit Espace so that I could hang it up immediately!

    Hi, been wanting to contact mypetitespace for artworks, but there’s been many months of silence. Do you know if they are still in operation?
