Paper Hats, Whimsical Portraits of the Once Discarded

The goal of Paper Hats is to show that all anyone or anything needs to shine is a second chance. Whether it’s a foster dog who was dealt a rough hand or a newspaper circular printed only to be never read, that with a little love, patience and creativity could be something amazing.

Our approach for the series was pretty straightforward. We raided our recycling bin for materials (newspaper, paper plates, even a few plastic cups) and designed elaborate headdresses and collars for rescue and foster dogs.

“All anyone really needs to shine is a second chance…”

Half of all art sale proceeds from Paper Hats benefit Bella’s Bully Buddies, an absolutely fantastic local 501(c)(3) nonprofit 100% volunteer operated dog rescue and foster organization.

The 24″ x 24″ pieces are ready-to-hang and printed directly to brushed aluminum.

The signed original prints are a first run / only run set, meaning they will not be reprinted in this format. So, once they’re gone they’re gone for good.
