Ode to a Squirrel

See the full collection from Helena Tyce Designs

£19.00

All designs start life as original mixed media artworks which are lovingly hand painted, collaged and printed.

Another belting verse, this time not by Steven Corbett but (apparently) by Mabel Corbett age 7 and a half.

Penned by our cockerpoo to express the frustrations she faces as NEVER being able to catch that darn squirrel!

“Nimble nemesis
Furry tailed felon
Through the leaves, we run
Is it life or death?
Or are we just having fun?

Why do I chase you?
Is it just because I can?
Is it free will?
Or part of God’s plan?” 

Illustrated by Helena and featuring a simple autumn scene this print makes a wonderful gift for dog lovers and squirel lovers alike!

One day Mabel, one day.

Printed onto archival quality fine art paper using light fast inks to produce stunning quality art which pops with colour.

A beautiful addition to your home and the perfect gift for a dog lover. This poem print will bring a little light and laughter into your home.

Helena’s work has evolved from her love of words, all things vintage and a few blasts from the past! Inspired by family, music, having fun and a bit of silliness, Helena is a pen and paper kinda gal and this is how every idea starts. Splicing the old with the new to reinvent classics, creating a distinctive style all of her own. Her mix of hand drawn illustrations, painting, iconic British imagery, words, letterpress and prints creates a warmth and richness that finds a place in people’s hearts. Capturing nostalgia with a contemporary twist.

Size of print - A4

Some prints are available in a larger size where overall size is A3 with an A4 image in an A3, these are £50 and available here.
