Artie Art was inspired by my love of art, dogs and joy in life. Artie was a therapy dog, companion, loyal friend and much loved canine member of our family. Every Tuesday and Holidays Artie and our other dogs would visit a local nursing home. The four dogs would ride in a wheelchair and Artie was the leader, teacher and a ham. He had charm, personality and attitude. He brought a smile to everyone he met. His spirit, determination and drive inspired me during a difficult time to create a line and dedicate it to him.Each image begins with a witty saying, a scene with a dog at a table with food and drink. Elements are drawn and carved out of erasers to become stamps. The image is then stamped on paper, cut out, and collaged onto a background of colors, and handmade patterns. The result is unique and makes you smile, laugh and feel good. And that's just like Artie!
