"The art-dogs started because I got tired of all people telling me that their dog was nice! I am afraid of dogs and I wanted to show people what a "˜nice' dog is. My dogs don't eat bark, jump, bite, drool or need to go out for a poop. They sit or stand "˜nicely' all day long, you can come and go as you please without having to worry about them... Now that is a "˜nice' dog!" These one-off handmade sculptures are authenticated with their own personalised name tag, collar and unique story detailed within a signed mini passport. Limited edition prints of 25 are also available of some of the dog sculptures. Bespoke edition sculptures can be made to order upon discussion of your requirements.
