Description My original 'Pugtini' was done in 2004 and was a limited edition of 250 which sold out in 2006. Pug Rescues across the country sold this print and kept 50% of the profit. This is my new Pugtini, an open edition.
Christine Head, San Clemente Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement Christine J. Head’s sought-after, limited edition prints and posters have helped numerous rescues raise much needed funds.
Initially, Christine did "hands-on" rescue work, housing several foster dogs and going through the painstaking process of finding the right permanent home for each of these dogs who already found a permanent place in her heart. Eventually, her interests in the creative arts and canine needs combined and she discovered the best way to
apply her talents to raise money and awareness for animal rescue.
Christine started The Puppy Sketches in 1999 and has been contributing to rescue organizations ever since by creating original and limited edition
posters. Originally, her beautiful portraits of dogs in need of urgent medical care and adoption accompanied by the dog’s poignant story, raised thousands of dollars for individual rescues.
Currently, Christine’s focus is on highly stylized vintage/Art Nouveau-style posters prints that raise money for multiple breed rescues. These posters
raise much needed funds for rescue organizations.
Some notable animal lovers and celebrities who collect her work include actresses Jorja Fox and Mary Steenburgen, and Comedienne Elayne Boosler.
