About the Artist: Dawn Bushong
I have always loved animals, especially cats, dogs, and horses, and have been drawing and painting them for as long as I can remember. In fact, one of my earliest memories is of asking my mother to show me how to draw a horse as well as she did. When given a choice in subject matter for art classes, I naturally gravitated towards animals. When I was 15, my drawing of four tiger heads in different media won first place in a high school art show.
I have experimented with different subject matter over the years, and while I enjoy landscape painting, I keep coming back to drawing and painting the animals that I love so much. It gives me great pleasure to also be able to give this to other people. I love to hear how delighted people are upon receiving the portrait of their special pet.
I would love to work with you, too, to paint a portrait of your special pet. If you have any questions about pet portraits, please feel free to contact me.
