Whether you’re crazy about Cockapoos or barking about Bichons, you’re sure to fall in love with Simon Hart’s amazing artwork. He has been capturing the personalities of our much-loved pets for more than 20 years, using a unique range of textures and patterns, from news print to musical scores.
I can’t get enough of his popular “Pawtraits” collection, which showcases 65 best-loved dog breeds. As well as the prints – which look great in a simple black frame – you can also buy mugs, cushions, cards, tea towels, tins and compact mirrors, many of which can be personalised with a pet’s name.
Simon, who lives in Devon, also creates colourful seascapes, many of which have been inspired by the quaint fishing villages of the West Country. And if his work seems familiar, you might have spotted it in either Ikea or Habitat, both of which have previously snapped up and sold his creations.
With items to suit all budgets, a little something from Simon’s Pawtraits range makes for a great gift. It also gives discerning dog lovers the perfect excuse to treat themselves to a new animal-themed accessory because you can never have too many!
Simon, who is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, says his mission is to make pet owners smile – and his work certainly does that.
