The Gifted Hound was created by artist Emma Gillo in 2016. It began as an outlet for her love of drawing dogs, but soon evolved as she found a passion for drawing all animals! Hares, mice, birds, bees, chickens and even bears have all come to feature across her giftware range. Encouraged by the success of her greetings cards Emma began to expand her business with mugs, coasters and notebooks. 

Every product features Emma’s original artwork which is created in her studio at home in West Sussex. Emma has carefully chosen product partners based here in Britain, to manufacture her gift range. 

Alongside expanding the animal gift range Emma continues her passion for painting through personal projects and commissioned portraits.
