My artwork is inspired by my love of animals and nature. I am fascinated by everything in nature, but dogs are my favorite subject and encompass the majority of my work. My art features detailed pet portraits and I enjoy trying different techniques with each piece. I work mainly with graphite pencils.
I grew up in Western Massachusetts. I became interested in drawing as a young child and was encouraged by my family to practice with different mediums. I became interested in playing the guitar in my teens and continue to teach guitar in Connecticut. As an adult I returned to drawing, focusing on graphite pencils. My love of animals becomes clear when I am working on a pet portrait. I enjoy each portrait as if it were my first drawing. I regularly donate original drawings for animal related fundraisers including "Second Chance" Large Animal Rehabilitation Facility and Dakin Humane Society.
I still live in Western Massachusetts. I enjoy spending my time with my family, two dogs, and cat. I love the convenience of being close to my favorite activities; hiking, camping and the East Coast beaches. I also enjoy traveling to Florida to visit Disney World and Universal Studios with my family.
I specialize in Commissioned Pet Portraits. You can order a commissioned drawing at http://www.davenevueart.com or contact me here for more info.
