Rudyard Kipling's 'If' Hand-finished Print

This gorgeous piece, hand written in brush calligraphy by Kirsten Burke is a fantastic motivational piece. Kipling had such trials and hardships in his life, but he overcame them time and time again. This poem, published three years after he won the Nobel Prize, encapsulates the lessons that he learned and that he considered to be the keys to his success.


Painted in blue tones and hand finished in metallic gold foil, so that it glistens in the light, this piece is part print (archive standards) and part original art work. If you would like to commission your own piece, created just for you, we would love to hear from you. Contact us at
