As a child in my father’s shoe factory, while under his desk, I often played with shoe ornaments and pieces of leather. I would deconstruct the ornaments, and with the leather, reconstruct them into new shoe designs. I quickly realized I had my own unique vision, and with my hands, could create anything.
During my career as a shoe designer, scissors became instrumental in cutting paper patterns. I applied this skill to my original art, and inspired by my love of dogs, created my first hand-cut dog portrait. Word spread, and I was able to assemble an extensive portfolio of commissions.
The American Kennel Club soon took notice, and started selling prints of my original dog portraits. The concept of incorporating my art on other items became irresistible, so I created a collection of "gifts for dog lovers".
Welcome to my store!
“...love, laugh, bark!”
“I commissioned Reed to create a few dog portraits
as a gift for the person who has everything (we all have them)!
Will be forever grateful for these amazing portraits, but even more grateful for the look on my friend’s face when he ripped off the gift wrap and was overcome by receiving such a unique and personal gift! Never to be forgotten!!!”
"Wag more, bark less!"
