I adore sighthounds…. Their sleek lines, grace and elegance are a sculptor’s dream and for many years have held a firm place in the Art World.

I began sculpting dogs with paper around four years ago and have now developed a sophisticated  technique using wire and layers of fine paper from recycled books. Each piece is individually made to order and develops a unique personality as the finishing touches of the expressive eyes and fine ears are added. At the end of the process, due to the use of the text, the piece is almost stone-like in texture. Each piece is then finished with two layers of sealant wash to preserve it for many years to come.

What is a sighthound?

Sighthounds were originally used for hunting and would be commonly used to detect, chase and capture prey. Their eyesight is keener than other types of dogs, they have long legs, lean athletic bodies and slender pointed muzzles, all of which point to an animal built for speed! They are capable of chasing their prey over long distances at high speed, changing course quickly when necessary. They will prick their ears up when they spot something of interest out on walks.Sight hounds are generally gentle and affectionate in nature. These dogs are probably among the easiest of dogs to live with in the home, content to doze away the day, preferably draped elegantly over the most comfortable sofa.

"Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please."
