Hounds in Verse
Bespoke illustrated dog portraits in verse
The “Hounds in Verse” poetic dog portraits celebrate the unique personal relationship we have with our dogs.
Each poem is written in rhyming couplets and is a whimsical, perceptive and heartfelt portrait of your dog and a truly unique expression of your relationship with them. It is an amusing and endearing celebration of your life together, that will make you smile, warm your heart and will be treasured for a lifetime.
Each one is completely bespoke, created from the specific and unique stories that each dog owner shares with me. A pen & ink drawing of your dog is part of the design.
For dogs that are no longer with us, the poem is a poignant tribute and an original way to remember the precious time spent together.
Each poem is individually hand lettered and illustrated in ink on Japanese Hosho paper.
I make my frames out of reclaimed wood and each frame has its own pattern of knots, grain, dinks, scratches, nail holes, rusty staples, wonky edges and aged patina.
The illustrated poem is recessed and float mounted on a black background. It comes ready to hang and is fitted with crystal clear acrylic glass.
Framed poems can only be shipped to UK addresses due to cost and risk of breakage.
