Hi! My name is Dana. Welcome to my store! I am a newer animal/ puppy artist here on ebay. I've never had an art lesson in my life and give all the glory of God for the talents he freely gave to me. I am a Christian and mother to five now adult children. I devoted my life to my large family. I've finally found a small window of time to pursue my passion to paint. I am also pursuing my dream to become a elementary school teacher. We are BIG animal lovers and advocates in our large family. I LOVE the smaller breeds like Yorkies, Bichon Frises, Dachshunds, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Westies, Scotties, Chihuahuas, Poodles, Schnauzers and on and on. I paint in a wide variety of fun styles from whimsical fantasy to realistic, folk, pet portraits, family portraits, wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, whales and dolphins too! My original, hand painted life size weenie dog Christmas sleighs have become a nation wide HIT! They are American folk art to the extreme! Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon!
