Today I want to share some of the work of award winning sculptor Louise Peterson. She studied clay modeling at Santa Monica College, learning to sculpt the human figure but after moving to the rural mountains of Colorado in 1998 the only model in her small studio was her Great Dane. What resulted were fine classical renderings of dogs that are often both humorous & elegant. Louise is a huge animal lover, & future plans include a retirement home for senior Great Danes. She already donates a portion of her sales to Great Dane rescue groups.
