The Dogstinctive Style of Artist Femke Hiemstra

Canine Culture

“Once Upon a Time”


Dot & Jerry Underfoot hunted down today’s artist. What caught their attention about this work was the wagnificently surreal quality of these vintage like pieces & their pawsome animal magnetism.  CEO Olivia here, today we’ve sniffed out the artwork of Netherland artist Femke Hiemstra.

After wanting to be a vet or forest ranger she ended up choosing the arts, following her inner artist to pawsue a career as a freelance illustrator. Her dogstinctive style quickly attracted attention & she has found success as a fine artist, pawcurring an impressive pack of collectors & fans.

Hiemstra’s paintings & drawings are dreamlike & witty, featuring anthropomorphic flora & fauna. She works with acrylics & graphite pencil on various (found) canvases. Her furbulous work has been hung in galleries all across Europe, the US, Japan & Australia.

Let’s take a sniff.
