Title: Folk dog painter and owner of Folk Dog Art in Bozeman, Mont.
What services do you offer?
I paint mostly dogs and some cats in traditional folk art fashion, which basically means they are simple, colorful and whimsical.
How and when did you get started painting pet portraits?
I have three dogs of my own, and I just adore each of them. I've always been an artist, and one day several years ago, I decided to try painting my dogs, just for fun. After several attempts, the folk dog art style emerged. I was fortunate enough to be able to hang my work in some local galleries, and ever since then I find myself painting dogs almost full-time.
