Many of Roz's photographs have been untouched and can be purchased on greeting cards, framed prints, magnets, etc. You can find these stunning photos for sale throughout our collie section at Dogs by Dezign.
Nearly all the art work is created from photos of our own collies, a few of the collies that were used for our art were by permission of their owners. We are grateful that they allowed us to use their wonderfully beautiful collies as models for our dezigns.
Both myself (DL) and my partner Roz, are graphic artists. Sometimes we will cartoon, watercolor, or use another form of computer enhancement to create whatever media type we are looking for in a particular design.
Some history of the prints offered here:
"She Waits" is a portrait of Delta Marie. Delta was an adorable rescue collie. She was found roaming the streets of a nearby town by the local animal rescue league. We were contacted about this collie, as we have worked with this league in finding placement homes for collies like Delta. She stole our heart, and we decided to adopt her. One endearing trait that Delta was famous for was her, "wiggle butt" routine. Never a stranger did she meet, and anyone that approaced her could not help but smile, as Delta would wiggle her hindquaters like mad, inviting a pat on the head, and a word of acknowledgment.
"Gone Fishin" is a portrait of Damon. Damon was my (DL) first collie. He was a true adventurist. Always up for a challenge, he never missed the opportunity to discover new things and new people. Damon lived to be almost fifteen before he went on to Rainbow Bridge, where I am sure he is still romping about, seeking out an adventure, and making a new friend.
"Per Chance to Dream" is a portrait of Chance. A beautiful rough blue merle collie that is now a healthy eleven years old. Chance now enjoys the day with his new playmate, Carrie. Carrie is a two month old golden retriever puppy. They get along charmingly, and Carrie has a knack for keeping Chance young. In this lovely watercolor simulation, one can image that Chance is taking a rest after a frolic around the yard with his new young sidekick. Peacefully he sleeps in his wicker basket, "per chance to dream" of his next escapade.
