Thank you again you did a fabulous job on the ornament!! The likeness is spot on!!! Communication was wonderful!!
I have been an artist and a dog lover since I can remember. I started taking classes in a studio when I was 11, and continued for another 8 years. I studied everything from traditional renaissance techniques to abstract art! It was a great learning experience, and really set the foundation for where I am today. My instructor, Ana, is a huge inspiration to me.
Whippetdog Studio started around 3 years ago. I hadn't been painting and drawing much in the years before, mostly drawing little doodles or doing small digital paintings of dogs. I had always been really interested in different dog breeds, and wanted to do something more than just researching them.
On a whim I decided to start a collection of dog breed ornaments, and it wasn't long after that I found Etsy. I started my shop with just a few ornaments, and soon I was hooked on creating more dog paintings! Along with pins, magnets, and small paintings, I added custom pet portraits to my shop, and I haven't stopped painting since. I have seen such growth in my artistic skills as well as in myself as a person through my Etsy shop, and I can't wait to see where this little studio goes in the future!
