Is someone on your gift list a serious dog lover? If so, you will love, love, love the work of artist Amelia Santiago. Amelia has successfully combined her love for animals and being an accomplished artist into a career that she is very passionate about. She creates exact replicas of the family pet into fine art needle felted animals.
All sculptures are made with 100% wool. Amelia examines as many photos as she can to “get to know” each pet. She studies them closely to really capture their personalities when creating their needle-felted likeness. On average, each sculpture takes about 20 hours to complete, which does not include the time to study the photos.
Although Amelia is already booked for this Christmas (that happened in August), she does offer gift certificates, that come in a beautiful card with images of her sculptures on the front, perfect to place under the tree.
To order simply go to Dog Art Portraits. This is a great gift for someone who needs to remember their beloved four-legged companion.
