Animal Portrait & Wildlife Artist Claire Milligan

Canine Culture

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’ve sniffed out the works of artist Claire Milligan. She is a self taught artist living & working from her studio in Yorkshire, England. Claire has been creating animal portraits for over 20 years, initially only in graphite pencil. She began using colored pencil in 2002 & it’s now her medium of choice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her animal portraits are created on a commission basis for clients all over the world. Claire Milligan has exhibited nationally & won awards for her work (2006).

Let’s have a look at more of her wagnificent work.

Enjoy the weekend.

Hello everyone, Canine Executive Officer Olivia here. Today I’ve sniffed out artwork by Swedish Artist Andreas Häggkvist. His surreal animal portraits are both alluring & packed with deeper meanings. Endangered & threatened fauna, climate change, plastic pollution, & poaching are just some of the subjects featured in Häggkvist’s pawsome art. In each case, he touches on serious issues without overwhelming.

Everyone here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs wish you a wooftastic weekend.
